2013/016: Funding Opportunities for Migratory Species: SOS Call for Proposals

The Secretariat of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) is pleased to inform you of the Third SOS – Save Our Species Call for Proposal for Threatened Species Grants in particular of those for sharks and rays and Central and Western African vertebrates. The deadline for applying for a SOS grant is 15 July. 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 any plans, actions or initiatives developed under the Convention and its instruments, and will strive to support these proposals with letters of endorsement.

Anyone who is eligible and interested in submitting a project proposal to the SOS that supports CMS goals is asked to please contact both:
