Conocophillips builds partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to protect threatened migratory birds

For more than a decade, ConocoPhillips and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation have worked hand-in-hand to conserve birds and other wildlife, while educating children and adults about the natural world.

ConocoPhillips partners with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation with the purpose of providing grants for bird habitat conservation projects in areas where the company has an operating presence. The program builds on a 15-year partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, which has funded more than 50 projects with a total value in excess of $6 million.

ConocoPhillips launched the SPIRIT of Conservation program in 2005 to protect threatened migratory birds and their habitats worldwide, especially in regions where they have operations, such as Louisiana, Gulf Coast, Siberia and China. ConocoPhillips and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation annually provide $800,000 for competitive grants in support of this partnership with a minimum grant size of $25,000. The focus of this program is directed toward projects that benefit migratory birds and their habitats.
