Interventions Addressing Wildlife Adaptation to Climate Change
April 10, 2015
Deadline for pre-proposal applications for grants for INTERVENTIONS ADDRESSING WILDLIFE ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE from the Wildlife Conservation Society North America Program: Climate Adaptation Fund. The WCS Climate Adaptation Fund, with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, supports projects that demonstrate effective interventions for wildlife adaptation to climate change. Grants of $50,000 to $250,000 are provided to nonprofit conservation organizations for applied, on-the-ground projects focused on implementing priority conservation actions for climate adaptation at a landscape scale. The Fund prioritizes projects that manage dynamic ecological processes, landscape functionality, and species assemblages, rather than those aimed at maintaining historic conditions or individual species. Grants are provided to U.S.-based nonprofit conservation organizations for projects within the 50 states and six U.S. territories. Pre-proposal application forms are due April 10. Visit the WCS website to download the Request for Proposals.
