Globally Threatened Seabird Colony Restoration Request for Pre-proposals

Title: Globally Threatened Seabird Colony Restoration Request for Pre-proposals

Supervisor:

Location:

American Bird Conservancy solicits pre-proposals for projects that will provide demonstrable benefits to Globally Threatened seabirds on the IUCN Red List by restoring breeding colonies within the Americas (defined as North, Central and South America, including Hawaiian and Caribbean Islands). A total of USD $100,000 is available. We anticipate supporting up to four projects.

Specifically, ABC is soliciting projects that meet the following criteria:

  • Priority consideration will be given to projects that provide lasting benefit to species listed as Critically Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN), Range-restricted Vulnerable (VU D2) that are declining, and Data Deficient (DD) on the IUCN Red List and breed in the Americas. Species eligible under these criteria are listed in Table 1.
  • Support for up to one colony restoration project will be considered for CR and EN species that breed outside the Americas but have an at-sea range within waters of the Americas.
  • Projects that implement the proposed conservation action within one year of award will be rated higher. However, we may support one or two projects that are in earlier stages of development and have a clear, realistic vision to achieve a lasting conservation outcome.
  • Projects must demonstrate match of at least 1:1, to be expended during the period of performance. In kind match is acceptable. Cash match is preferred. Details on match will be required in the full proposal stage.

15 February 2019 – Application period opens for pre-proposals

15 March 2019 – Pre-proposal submission deadline
