TVERC offers a small grant scheme to support ecological recording in partnership with independent environmental funder the Trust for Oxfordshire's Environment (TOE). Applications are invited from projects that improve the quality, quantity and/or coverage of voluntary species recording in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

Applications may be for grants to support independent projects to provide for better recording. Alternatively they may be linked to a larger practical habitat creation or management project which includes an element of species recording.

Most grants from this fund are up to £500 but applications up to £2,000 can be considered, depending on the nature of the project and the level of funds available.

Find out more from the TOE website.

Examples of successful applications include:

  • Benson Nature Group 
  • High Park Biodiversity survey 
  • Windmill Farm Wildlife
  • West Oxfordshire Farmland Bird Project
  • Upper Thames Butterfly Conservation
  • River Thame Conservation Trust
  • Surveys for Pale Shining Brown Moth
