Great Ape Conservation Fund-Asia

Sponsor: Fish and Wildlife Service
Target Group: Faculty & Staff
Closing Date: May 7, 2021
Description: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (Service) mission is to work with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The International Affairs Program delivers on this mission through its financial assistance programs by supporting strategic projects that deliver measurable conservation results for priority species and their habitats around the world. In response to the decline of ape populations in Africa and Asia, the U.S. Government enacted the Great Ape Conservation Act of 2000. The Act provides for the conservation and protection of apes by supporting conservation programs in countries within their ranges and the projects of persons and organizations with demonstrated expertise in ape conservation. The Service works closely with national governments, U.S. agencies, and a range of other partners to ensure a strategic, results-based approach to ape conservation in Africa and Asia. This funding opportunity aligns with the Service mission. The Great Ape Conservation Fund (GACF)-Asia program is soliciting project proposals for the conservation of orangutans (Pongo spp.) and gibbons (family Hylobatidae) throughout their ranges.
