Please note that the Notices of Funding Availability (NOFAs) have been

Decline Program (WWB-AD) and the Wildlife Without Borders-Critically 
Endangered Animals Conservation Fund (WWB-CEACF).  The deadline to submit 
proposals for both funds is May 1, 2011. 


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announces a call for proposals for the 
2011 Wildlife Without Borders: Critically Endangered Animals Conservation 
Fund to fund projects that conserve the world?s most endangered species. 
Proposals are due MAY 1, 2011.

The Notice for Funding Availability (NOFA) is available at the following 
link: http://www.fws.gov/international/dic/pdf/nofa_ceacf11.pdf

Additional guidance and specific links for the various forms and 
requirements are listed below my signature.

Species eligible for funding are those that face a very high risk of 
extinction in the immediate future. Species should meet the criteria to be 
listed as ?Critically Endangered? or ?Endangered? on the International 
Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. Species listed as 
?Data Deficient? on the IUCN Red List are also eligible if the applicant 
can provide information that suggests a similar urgency for conservation 
action. Species listed as ?Extinct in Wild? are eligible if the applicant 
is proposing a reintroduction attempt. Proposed project work should occur 
within the species range, or, if work is to be conducted outside of the 
range, the proposal should show a clear relevance to its conservation.

The fund prioritizes conservation actions and field activities, not 

The following species are NOT eligible for funding: 
Species that do not meet the criteria to be listed on the IUCN Red List
