As part of its program “Wildlife Without Borders,” the USFWS makes grants for the conservation of selected wildlife species, including rhinos and tigers. The current call is for proposals to identify immediate threats to rhino survival in Africa, and to support direct conservation activities to eliminate or reduce those threats. If the project includes research, the applicant must provide a convincing argument that the research addresses priority threats, and that the results are likely to result in management actions. Proposals are invited from any organization responsible for the conservation and protection of rhinos in the wild and any other organization, multi-national secretariat, public or private university, or individual with demonstrated experience in rhino conservation. Grants will range from US$10 thousand to US$200 thousand. The application deadline is 05 April 2017.
