The Share with Wildlife program of the State of New Mexico's Department of Game and Fish (Agency) will consider projects to conduct habitat enhancement (habitat), biological and ecological studies (research), wildlife rehabilitation, and wildlife education to begin during the second half of fiscal year (FY) 2020 (1 January 2020-31 May 2020). The Share with Wildlife program provides funding to perpetuate the renewable wildlife resource that provides pleasure and recreation to all New Mexicans (7-2-23 NMSA 1978). Share with Wildlife focuses on wildlife species that are without other sources of funding and provides for conservation and management efforts in New Mexico that would otherwise be lacking in support.
Project Topics of Particular Interest
- habitat enhancement (habitat),
- biological and ecological studies (research),
- wildlife rehabilitation, and
- wildlife education.
Projects must address one or more of the following topics, which represent Agency priorities, OR continue projects previously funded through last year’s (FY2019) CFPI. All projects must relate to one or more SGCN as identified in the SWAP. Research and habitat projects must ALSO address one or more conservation actions as outlined in the SWAP. Pertinent portions of the SWAP to consider include the list of SGCN (pages 14-19) and species-specific threats and factors that affect SGCN (Appendix F; pages 310-365). Conservation actions are described in Chapters 5 through 10 for each threat within each ecoregion and in Chapter 3 for threats to aquatic ecosystems. Habitat descriptions are spread across ecoregion chapters (Chapters 5-10) and in Chapter 2. Project topic numbers are included below; all offerors, except those continuing a project from FY2019, should reference one or more of these topic numbers on their proposal Cover Sheet (Appendix A).
