Description: This is an announcement for issuing a single source financial assistance award to the Birds Caribbean of Arlington, VA. This announcement is for notification purposes only. The intent of this award is to support the Atlantic Flyway Shorebird Initiative (AFSI) by increasing capacity within the Caribbean region to identify and prioritize cross-cutting threats and conservation needs of shorebirds and also to empower local Caribbean organizations to address these threats and needs. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Northeast Region, intends to make a sole source award of a grant agreement to BirdsCaribbean. Funding for this project is provided under the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956, as amended, 16 U.S.C. 742a-754, and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 16 U.S.C. 2901-2911. BirdsCaribbean was selected to receive this award based on a combination of the following criteria: 1) this project is a continuation of activities for which BirdsCaribbean has already been funded including coordinating the Caribbean Waterbird Census, and 2) BirdsCaribbeanâ¿¿s unique qualifications for successfully completing the work described below with regard to shorebird conservation and monitoring activities in the Caribbean region due to the large partnership it has developed of local organizations and entities working on bird conservation in the Caribbean.
