National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Seabird Conservation Program
The overlap of seabirds and humans on oceanic islands and in the marine environment has driven many species to the brink of extinction. Consequently, a major challenge to effective seabird conservation is to mitigate human-induced threats at multiple temporal and spatial scales; in other words, to protect and restore habitats utilized by seabirds throughout the entire life cycle (on both land and at sea). The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation has released this RFP for research that will focus on several geographies within the Pacific, including the following priority regions: Alaska, Chile, California Current (including Mexico), Hawaii and US overseas lands and territories in the Pacific. All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to the Pacific seabird program business plan goals.
