Call for Project Information
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, biological and ecological studies, wildlife rehabilitation, and wildlife education to begin during the second half of fiscal year (FY) 2018 (1 January 2018-31 May 2018). 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.
The purpose of this Call For Project Information (CFPI) is to identify potential project topics and qualified personnel who may implement tasks within the State Wildlife Action Plan for New Mexico (SWAP). These tasks benefit Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) and/or their habitats by filling gaps in wildlife conservation actions that cannot be addressed internally under current Agency staffing levels.
The Agency emphasizes that this CFPI is not equivalent to the formal state procurement procedure that is referred to as a Request For Proposals. This CFPI is intended to generate project ideas for consideration and possible implementation during FY2018. Share with Wildlife staff will consult with other Agency personnel and individuals from agencies and organizations with mandates and responsibilities relating to wildlife and habitat conservation and management in New Mexico to develop recommendations for Share with Wildlife project funding in FY2018. Share with Wildlife projects may also include project needs that are identified internally within the Agency and outside of this CFPI. Proposals for projects that exceed a threshold of $50,000 of state funding will not be selected for funding under this CFPI.
