Description: Background: Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah have been active partners in the collaborative, science-based conservation campaign to protect the greater sage-grouse and the sagebrush ecosystem. Due to the collective efforts of federal, state and private partners across the range, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has found that the greater sage-grouse does not warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act. Conserving the greater sage-grouse will benefit hundreds of other native plants and animals and communities across the West. These conservation efforts are led and strengthened by effective partnerships â¿¿ ensuring that the gains we make for the greater sage-grouse will endure. Objectives: The objective of this agreement is to establish a Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Program in the Rocky Mountain Region (MT, WY, CO and UT) through which the BLM and the recipient can cooperatively identify conservation needs, identify and fund actions, activities, projects, and track accomplishments leading to the conservation of Greater Sage-Grouse on BLM lands. The recipient will seek opportunities to expand the program by attracting new partners. In coordination with BLM, the recipient will invite other federal agencies and private parties to participate in the program. This program expansion shall improve the overall conservation outcomes associated with the project through increased coordination, creating efficiencies of scale, and leveraging the funds of multiple federal agencies and private parties. The program is designed to support actions, activities, and projects that directly address threats or provide proactive conservation for Greater Sage-Grouse. The intent of these actions it to ensure that the species is not warranted for listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The program will implement on-the-ground conservation actions or other projects needed to effectively and efficiently manage sage-grouse and their habitats. BLM will partner with the recipient to establish sage-grouse conservation actions with the goal of achieving landscape-level results. Public Benefit: Conservation of Greater Sage-Grouse and its habitat provide an essential connection for Americans of all ages and abilities to the lifeâ¿enhancing benefits of nature and the outdoors. Building a public program that demonstrates the ability of collaborative efforts to conserve sage-grouse and sagebrush habitats will help save money long-term, will conserve values of public lands, and will demonstrate that conservation of this species can be achieved in a multiple use management setting. This project will improve the overall conservation outcomes through increased coordination, creating efficiencies of scale, and collaboration between multiple federal agencies and private parties.

Description: Tasks to be performed on this project: gather detailed scientific information on grizzly bear physiology and nutrition in order to facilitate decisions for the recovery of wild bears in accordance with the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act of 1958, 16 U.S.C. 661-667 and the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531-1543). The bears located and held at this facility are covered by an Endangered Species Recovery Permit (TE047283-1). 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 purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support investigators performing research to identify the barriers and facilitators to implementation of an evidence-based practice(s) for heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) diseases in the inpatient setting. NHLBI is seeking applications that will utilize an implementation research framework to develop an implementation strategy (or strategies) to be tested during a subsequent hybrid effectiveness-implementation trial. During this grant, investigators will measure the baseline or usual care practice with respect to the evidence-based practice(s) of interest and plan for the subsequent trial. This FOA intends to support applications that propose a multidisciplinary research team that includes both inpatient clinical research expertise and implementation research expertise. At the conclusion of this U01, awardees and other qualified applicants may be ready to apply to a separate NHLBI-funded FOA, described in NOT-HL-17-493, to support the trial.
