Grants to USA, Canada, and International individuals for conservation activities related to kelp ecosystems. Funding is intended for the application of genetic data to protect and manage these ecosystems. Proposals may incorporate any species involved in the kelp ecosystem, including fish, invertebrates, sea birds, marine mammals, and kelp.
Revive & Restore and Morris Animal Foundation are pleased to partner on the Wild Genomes - Kelp Forest Ecosystems Program: a new funding opportunity for conservationists interested in applying genetic insight to the protection and management of kelp ecosystems. Wild Genomes funding calls are topic-specific. Wild Genomes proposals focused on species that live within kelp forests are now being accepted. Proposals should describe a conservation-oriented effort that will benefit substantially from genomic sequencing and biobanking.
Wild Genomes is designed to accelerate the genomic sequencing and biobanking of species with a clear conservation need. Potential projects will be evaluated according to timeliness and urgency (e.g. at-risk species), the ecological role of the targeted species (e.g. keystone species), the species’ potential role in providing ecosystem services, and the potential impact of the project. Through this program, Wild Genomes aims to put the fundamental tools of genetic rescue into the hands of people who manage wildlife to achieve positive conservation outcomes.
