The work will provide direct and valuable information on the nutritional ecology of grizzly bears to the public, as well as multiple applications to advance grizzly recovery. The work provides direct and valuable information on the nutritional ecology of grizzly bears and the information developed is used for multiple applications to advance grizzly bear recovery. The products coming out of this work allow us to understand how to measure stable isotopes in bear hair, blood, and tissue to know what the bears have been eating. From this work, we can also measure the percentage of fate in every bear we handle so we know how the bears are doing in good and bad food years and in certain habitats.

Description: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is pleased to announce the availability of research funding in 2017 to investigate issues related directly to the management of white-nose syndrome (WNS). This opportunity is open to non-governmental, university, and private researchers, as well as State and Federal agencies, and Tribes. For information on WNS and currently funded projects, please see: http://www.whitenosesyndrome.org/ As of March 10, 2017, WNS has been confirmed in bats in 30 states and the causative fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd) has also been detected in two additional states without confirmation of the disease. Twelve North American and 21 Eurasian species of bats have been confirmed with WNS or detected carrying Pd. Surveys in affected areas continue to reveal population declines associated with the disease at most contaminated sites in North America. The Service has targeted up to $1.2 million for an open funding opportunity in 2017 to investigate high priority questions about WNS that will improve our ability to manage the disease and conserve affected bats. Available funds are internally directed for Fiscal Year 2017. This funding opportunity accompanies three additional funding opportunities from the Service for WNS in 2017: 1) Bats for the Future Fund (with National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and U.S. Forest Service) www.nfwf.org/bats; 2) WNS Grants to States program (grants.gov Funding Opportunity # F17AS00166 open through May 15, 2017), and 3) WNS Small Grants for Communications and Research on WNS (with Wildlife Management Institute, anticipated in Fall 2017).

Description: The Fox River/Green Bay Natural Resource Trustees restore natural resources injured by the release of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) into the Lower Fox River and Green Bay, WI. The Trustees allocate funding, provided by settlement dollars from responsible parties, to restoration projects that fulfill the natural resource objectives of the 2003 Joint Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment for The Lower Fox River and Green Bay Area and the 2016 Restoration Plan Update under the authority of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act. The Lower Fox River/Green Bay NRDA is not a conventional grants program, in that it does not solicit for projects through a formal request for proposals on Grants.gov; instead project idea forms are developed strategically in coordination with the Trustee Council. Following the review process, if a project is selected it will be issued through the Service as a single source grant agreement without competition under justification 505DM 2.14.B.4. Applicants seeking funding under this program should review the requirements and selection criteria and contact the restoration coordinator to discuss their project concept prior to submitting an application for funding.
