Dear Coral-Listers,


The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is pleased to announce the first
round of grantmaking though its Climate Adaptation Fund - a program to
support projects that demonstrate effective interventions for wildlife
adaptation to climate change. 


The WCS Climate Adaptation Fund will provide up to $2 million in competitive
grants in 2011. Grants will be 1-2 years in length, and range from $50,000
to 250,000 per project. Awards will be made to non-profit conservation
organizations for applied, on-the-ground projects focused on implementing
priority conservation actions for climate adaptation at a landscape scale.
Only projects in the 50 US states or 6 territories are eligible for this
Fund. Marine and coral-related projects are encouraged.


Pre-proposals are due no later than 5:00 PM MST on Friday, April 29, 2011.
Further information and the pre-proposal application form can be found at:

Best regards,
