The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), is soliciting proposals to slow or halt the spread of white-nose syndrome disease (WNS) in North America and promote the survival and recovery of WNS-affected bat populations and species.
The objectives of the BFF are to:
The Bats for the Future Fund will award grants to projects that develop and deploy field treatments, management tools and conservation strategies for populations that are currently impacted or are likely to be in the future. Proposed actions should be tailored to the disease status, species and habitat(s) in which they are intended to be used. Project objectives should vary depending on epidemiological focus of the proposed work as it relates to the status of Pd and WNS in project areas.
