Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels

The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund calls for applications

The Secretariat of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) informs of a new funding opportunity.  The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund supports the protection of endangered species.

The grant promotes objectives that are consistent with those of the Convention and its specialized agreements, such as ACAP, and may thus provide a source of funding to assist the CMS Family with the implementation of conservation activities on the ground.

The Secretariat encourages Parties to the Convention and partner organizations to propose projects that contribute to the implementation of any plans, actions or initiatives developed under CMS and its instruments, and will strive to support these proposals with letters of endorsement.
