The Newfoundland Breeding Bird Atlas is a non-profit project, which aims to promote bird conservation on the island and provide data that is freely available through public databases. As such, the atlas relies on volunteers, charitable donations, government funding, and corporate sponsorship to accomplish its goals. Because of the significant effort and resources required to visit some remote locations, the atlas project provides some travel support in the form of small travel grants, tax relief, and other in-kind arrangements.
Atlas results are not monetized, so significant financial and in-kind support are required for travel, coordination and implementation of fieldwork, coordination and analysis of atlas data, and development of online tools and volunteer support materials. The following government and non-government organizations, companies, foundations and individuals have made financial or significant in-kind donations to the Atlas. All donations are tax deductible.
*The primary source of funding for the Wildlife Habitat Canada Grant Program is the purchase of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp (Canadian Duck Stamp) by waterfowl hunters.
