2013/027: Funding Opportunities from US: USFWS Grant Announcement - Deadline December 1

The Secretariat of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) is pleased to inform you of two forthcoming funding opportunities within the Wildlife Without Borders programme of the United States Fish & Wildlife Service International Conservation Funds. Project proposals can be submitted to the African Elephant and the Great Ape Conservation Funds. The deadline for applying for both grants is 1 December. Instructions for applicants can be found here.

These grants promote objectives that are consistent with those of the Convention and its specialized agreements and may thus provide a source of funding to assist CMS with the implementation of conservation activities on the ground. The CMS Secretariat encourages its Parties and partners to propose projects that contribute to the implementation of the Convention and its instruments, in line with any plans, actions or initiatives developed under them, and will strive to support these proposals
with letters of endorsement.

Anyone interested in submitting a project to these USFWS Funds that supports CMS goals is asked to please contact both:
