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
