ACAP calls for project applications to improve conservation status of listed species

Applications are sought for research and project funding that will assist the Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels (ACAP) to meet its objective of achieving and maintaining a favourable conservation status for albatrosses and petrels.


Total funding of approximately AUD$ 100 000 is available for allocation from the Advisory Committee (AC) Work Programme budget in 2010.


Applications must be submitted on an ACAP Project Application Form. When assessing project applications, preference will be given to projects that address elements of the AC Work Programme. Click here for information on these elements of the work programme. Innovative proposals making a substantive contribution to the Agreement's objective will also be considered.


Limited funding may also be available for projects which address other elements of the Advisory Committee's Work Programme. Applicants are encouraged to contact the relevant Working Group Convenor to discuss the development and relevance of their application to ensure it addresses the requirements of the AC Work Programme.


Applications opened on 19 May 2010 and close on 16 July 2010.


Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their applications by 1 October 2010.
