NWF's Keep the Wild Alive Project Offers Species Recovery Fund Grants
for 2003

The National Wildlife Federation's Keep the Wild Alive project is
kicking off the fourth year of its very successful Species Recovery Fund
(SRF).  KWA is now accepting applications from local conservation and
other groups with innovative ideas for helping imperiled species. In
2003, Keep the Wild Alive will award ten grants ranging from $3,000 to
$7,000. Applications must be received by February 15, 2002, and grants
will be awarded in April 2002.  Over the past three years, SRF has
awarded roughly 30 small grants to local, grassroots groups that are
making a tangible contribution to species conservation. 

This year, SRF will support grassroots efforts that aim to improve
on-the-ground conditions for any species listed under the federal
Endangered Species Act (ESA). This is a significant change for SRF,
which for the past three years has funded only projects benefitting one
of the 25 Keep the Wild Alive species or taxonomically related species.

Please help KWA spread the word about SRF by passing this information,
including the new guidelines, when appropriate, to any groups or
individuals you know who are working on the preservation of endangered
species. Complete information for SRF can be found at
www.nwf.org/wildalive and obtained from KWA coordinator, Emy
Rodriguez (email erodriguez@nwf.org, Ph: 202-797-6617). Please contact
her with any questions, she loves nothing more than to answer your
questions about the Species Recovery Fund!
