Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, government agencies, Tribes, and international and educational organizations to implement initiatives that protect sea turtles in eligible locations. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to the full application. Funding is intended to promote sustainable fishing communities; restore, protect, and manage nesting beach habitats; and develop capacity for population-scale conservation. Grant focus must be on Western Hemisphere.

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.

Program Priorities:

  • Strategy 1: Promoting Sustainable Fishing Communities through Reduced Sea Turtle Bycatch in Focal Fisheries
  • Strategy 2: Nesting Beach Habitat Restoration, Protection, and Management 
  • Strategy 3: Building and Maintaining Capacity for Population-Scale Conservation
