Hi CDHC Members,
Just wanted to let you know of this funding opportunity.

CY 2007 and CY 2008 Funding Opportunity for Coral Reef Research:

The Hawai‘i Undersea Research Laboratory (HURL), a National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Undersea Research Program Center, in 
partnership with the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) is 
soliciting research pre-proposals for coral reef research for FY2007 and 

Geographic Regions of Interest:

* The waters of the Main and Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, America 
Samoa, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. 
Pacific Remote Insular Areas, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, 
Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Palau.

This funding opportunity is for one to two year research projects that 
address one or more of the following key threats facing U.S. coral 
reefs: overfishing, pollution, invasive species, disease, climate 
change, and coral bleaching. Proposals should be geared towards 
management-oriented research to 1) develop a better understanding of the 
role of these threats in coral reef ecosystem decline; 2) predict the 
impacts from and responses of reef communities to these anthropogenic 
and natural stressors; and 3) design, test and evaluate the 
effectiveness of specific reef management measures. Proposals should 
clearly demonstrate how the scientific information, tools, or other 
products from the project would enable resource managers to address 
threats to reefs and advance conservation of coral reef ecosystems.

The request for pre-proposals full announcement is attached and can also 
be found on the web at http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/HURL/rfp2006_coral.html

Pre-proposals are due to HURL on December 29, 2006.

For any further information regarding this opportunity, please contact 
Dr. John R. Smith (808) 956-9669, jrsmith at hawaii.edu.
