"By the end of the last century, the National Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration had distributed more than 170 million dollars in research grants worldwide. But as the new century dawned, National Geographic recognized the need for a new kind of grant program, one with a special emphasis on conservation.

"In March of 2001, the Conservation Trust gave its first grant—to botanist Nalini Nadkarni for her unique, outreach-oriented forest canopy studies." [1]
