Grant Writing Bootcamp

Grants Header

CCSA is organising a grant 'bootcamp' for anyone wishing to improve their grant writing skills from any sector. Whether you're in arts or social services, conservation or health, this workshop will be a one day intensive for anyone writing grants.

This full day workshop provides an opportunity for grant seekers to:

  • Learn how to better articulate the needs of your community
  • Learn how to make a succinct and targeted 'pitch' for a grant
  • Get a clear understanding of what different types of projects grant makers can and can't fund

Come face-to-face with some real live grant makers and assessors.


Join us in the 2nd Great Groper Count!

Last year CCSA received a State NRM Community Grant to help its work towards unravelling the secrets of the western blue groper (WBG). Many volunteers helped us to survey western blue gropers at 25 sites across SA.

Excitingly we'll be doing it all again this year!! So if you missed out last year, you've got a second chance at seeing this spectacular reef fish. If you're interested in being involved, please contact Steve Leske: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

One of the more prominent and spectacular of South Australia's diverse reef fish, WBG populations are believed to have diminished across the state's gulfs, so having this second year of data will help to build a good snapshot of the state of blue groper in SA.


$8b to swap deckchairs?


19 December 2012

The Conservation Council of South Australia today urges the Federal Government to resist the poor policy advice it has received from its Climate Change Authority on the Renewable Energy Target.

Conservation Council SA Chief Executive Tim Kelly said: "Today the Climate Change Authority has recommended that $8 billion of funds raised from taxes and the carbon price are used to swap around deckchairs on the Titanic."


A great change for our marine environment

29 November 2012

Today the state government announced the final details of sanctuary zones in South Australia's marine parks, marking the end of a process started by the previous government to establish South Australia's first Marine Protected Areas.


Green Our Grid Christmas appeal 2012

Help us change climate change talk back into action.

Recent signs that Arctic summer sea ice will be gone within a few years indicate that climate change is happening decades faster than predicted. This should ring alarm bells for state and federal governments, but instead of responding they are abandoning climate change programs. We have a simple way to break the deadlock.
