Protected Species Cooperative Conservation: The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is soliciting applications to support the conservation of threatened and endangered species, recently de-listed species, and candidate species under the jurisdiction of the NMFS or under the joint jurisdiction of the NMFS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (e.g. sea turtles). Any state that has entered into an agreement with the NMFS and maintains an adequate and active program for the conservation of endangered and threatened species pursuant to section 6(c) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) is eligible to apply. These financial assistance awards can be used to support management, monitoring, research, and outreach activities that provide direct conservation benefits to listed species, recently de-listed species, or candidate species that reside within that state. Projects involving North Atlantic right whales will not be considered for funding under this grant program; such projects may be submitted under the North Atlantic Right Whale Research Program of the NMFS Northeast Regional Office. Projects focusing on listed Pacific salmon will also not be considered under this grant program; State conservation efforts for these species are funded through the Pacific Salmon Coastal Recovery Fund. The program priorities for this opportunity support NOAA's mission support goal of ``Ecosystems''.
