Proposals Sought for International Sea Turtle Conservation Fund

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation has announced the availability of matching-grant funding for international sea turtle conservation projects in the Western Hemisphere.

Priority will be given to projects along the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts of Central and South America and in the wider Caribbean (including the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico) and Canada. Priority consideration will be given to projects demonstrating clear and immediate benefit to the conservation of hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) and leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea) turtles in the wider Caribbean and East Pacific, and east Pacific green turtles (Chelonia mydas). Proposals will be accepted for no more than $25,000 each and require matching funding (at a minimum1:1 ratio, preferably greater). Project period should be twelve to eighteen months.
