Science & Implementation Support in the Southeast

Funding Agency:
US Fish and Wildlife Service

The Service is the primary fish and wildlife conservation agency within the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, tasked with a diverse array of responsibilities related to conservation and societal valuation of public trust resources. The Migratory Bird and Science Applications programs of the Southeast Fish & Wildlife Service seek to maximize the conservation of birds and other trust resources by jointly working to maintain bird populations at prescribed levels, provide leadership in conservation and management of trust species and their habitats, manage data and information for use in decision making, and ensure the meaningful inclusion of multiple partners and stakeholders in landscape-scale planning and implementation of conservation actions. This funding opportunity will address advancement of specific Department of the Interior, national and regional conservation priorities through projects that support the development and use of targeted science to support delivery of conservation actions. Project proposals will identify the specific approaches and outcomes that will advance those priorities and objectives as described below. The Department of the Interior seeks to address the intersecting challenges of COVID-19, economic recovery, racial equity and climate change.
