Seabirds represent a diverse group of birds whose life history cycles are intricately linked to marine and coastal resources. Seabirds forage at sea, often far from breeding colonies; disperse over vast distances; and are both colonial and solitary breeders. The overlap of seabirds and humans on oceanic islands and in the marine environment has driven many species to the brink of extinction. Consequently, a major challenge to effective seabird conservation is to mitigate human-induced threats at multiple temporal and spatial scales; in other words, to protect and restore habitats utilized by seabirds throughout the entire life cycle (on both land and at sea). The Seabird Conservation Program is supported by the Pacific Seabird Program business plan and Caribbean Seabird Program business plan. In 2016, NFWF’s board of Director’s approved a 6-year continuation of the Pacific Seabird Program. Available funding for the Seabird Conservation Program will vary from year to year depending on implementation needs of the business plans. This request for proposals will award approximately $3,500,000 in funding support for Pacific seabird conservation efforts in 2018.
We are not accepting funding requests for the Caribbean Seabird Program at this time.
