Celebra las Playeras (Celebrate Shorebirds): The USFWS is not seeking applications. The USFWS plans to award this cooperative agreement under the Department Manual 505-2, using 2.14B(1) to justify a single source award to Environment for the Americas (EFTA). 2.14B(1) Unsolicited Proposal - the proposal award is the result of an unsolicited assistance application which represents a unique or innovative idea, method, or approach which is not the subject of a current or planned contract or assistance award but which is deemed advantageous to the program objectives. Environment for the Americas (EFTA) proposes to develop and implement Celebra las Playeras. Celebra las Playeras will provide internships that will introduce high school and college-aged Latino youth to research and monitoring experiences via explorations of emerging threats to shorebirds and wetlands, such as climate change and habitat loss, and to environmental education as these youth share their knowledge in their communities. This project will build on the USFWS Shorebird Sister Schools Program with EFTA's knowledge of and expertise working in Latino communities across the United States. EFTA's proposal is in alignment with the Youth in the Great Outdoors initiative's need for programs to engage, educate and employ under-represented youth in natural resource careers.
