Forwarding information on a call for proposals. Note that cycads are
mentioned! We have a few natives in the continental U.S., more in Puerto
Rico and Hawai'i, and certainly some highly endemic and particularly
threatened natives in Guam, etc. So I encourage you to put on your
thinking caps for U.S. natives and submit a proposal.
Here's more info to go with the message below:
SOS provides two types of grants:
? Threatened Species Grants (25,000 to 800,000 $US) for which calls with
specific Strategic Directions are issued on a regular basis. Average
project size is expected to be 100,000 $US. Projects above 200,000 $US
will be awarded on an exceptional basis.
? Rapid Action Grants (up to 25,000 $US) available on an ongoing basis and
supporting conservation actions in case of emergency situations. These
grants will be awarded to support a special class of projects aimed at
addressing immediate threats that require targeted specific action, with
high chance of generating rapid positive results.
Deadline: June 22nd, 2012
