Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofits, agencies, Indian tribes, and educational institutions to protect the migration of shorebirds. Funding is intended to enhance habitat conditions at critical sites on which Atlantic shorebirds depend at different stages of their annual lifecycle. The purpose of the program is to to protect populations of American oystercatcher, whimbrel, and threatened red knot. Conservation actions to address threats to each of these species is expected to provide ancillary impacts to dozens of other shorebird species. NFWF seeks to partner with organizations with capacity to establish full lifecycle monitoring for focal species.
This program focuses on priority shorebird sites along the U.S. Atlantic seaboard, the Florida gulf coast and panhandle, and priority wintering sites for each of the focal species including portions of the Caribbean and South America. All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to the Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Business Plan goals.
