About this funder:




NFWF's Sea Turtles Program implements a multi-species business plan that guides conservation investments to measurably improve the current recovery trajectories of four sea turtle populations in the Western Hemisphere: leatherbacks and loggerheads in the Northwest Atlantic, and leatherbacks and hawksbills in the Eastern Pacific. This Request for Proposals will award up to $750,000 in U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service funds.

Key conservation strategies for this program include:

  • Reduce bycatch in fishing gear - support incentive-based approaches for the development and implementation of turtle-friendly fishing gear and practices;  
  • Increase and protect the productivity of priority nesting beaches;
  • Build strong regional networks to implement conservation activities – support standardized methods, models and learning networks across the population range as well as coordinated monitoring networks to evaluate the progress of conservation efforts.
