Hundreds of thousands of students and educators are making a difference for wildlife and nature!

Key Dates

Go Wild Grants

Canadian secondary schools are going wild with WWF-Canada, creating leadership opportunities and student experiences in building a sustainable future. Are you a secondary student interested in leading a Go Wild project? Consult with a teacher to support you in your project proposal. If you are a teacher, consider a classroom brainstorming session to shape your Go Wild proposal, or host a student pitch competition to identify a project or two to submit to WWF-Canada for funding.

Interested in Going Wild with WWF-Canada?

Every fall, WWF-Canada invites students and educators to share their best ideas that will help nature thrive. You will have the opportunity to submit your proposal for a chance to receive a grant to kick-start your project in your school community.

Go Wild Grants are designed to help students and educators protect and restore habitat on school grounds, for the benefit of wildlife and people. Previous grantees have created native pollinator gardens and seed orchards, restored creeks and forests, monitored local wildlife, conducted biodiversity inventories, raised awareness about conservation issues, and more!

We prioritize ideas that help school communities to:

  • Learn and discover the local ecosystem, its history, biodiversity, how it works and what it needs
  • Take action for nature by creating, restoring or protecting habitat with native plants and trees
  • Connect with your communities to create lasting impact

Check out our 2023-2024 grantees and stay tuned for your next opportunity to Go Wild in September 2024. Sign up for our Living Planet @ School newsletter for updates on how you can Go Wild with WWF-Canada.
