Just wanted to let everyone know about a grant opportunity for funds for climate adaptation projects from the Wildlife Conservation Society with original funding from the Doris Duke Foundation. WCS has explicitly mentioned coordination with LCC’s as being a positive basis for projects. Please note that there is a rather short deadline of April 29 for pre-proposal submission. The focus of the program is to, “support projects that demonstrate effective interventions for wildlife adaptation to climate change” . Note that the funds cannot be used explicitly for science support but that other sources of funds that provide the science can be matched with the work proposed for WCS funding.
