Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund FY14

The Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund is soliciting proposals for the conservation of rhinoceroses and/or tigers throughout their ranges.

The Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act was passed in 1994 to provide financial resources for the conservation programs of nations whose activities directly

or indirectly affect rhinoceros and tiger populations.

The Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund supports projects that promote conservation through:
• Enhanced protection of at-risk rhinoceros and tiger populations; • Reducing demand in consumer countries and trafficking for illegal rhino and tiger parts, products and live animals; • Protected area/reserve management in important rhinoceros and tiger range; • Veterinary care for wild populations; • Habitat conservation and management; • Reintroduction to former range; • Restoration of habitat; • Wildlife inspection, law enforcement, and forensics skills; • Conservation education and community outreach; • Efforts to decrease human-rhinoceros and human-tiger conflicts; • Strengthening local capacity to implement conservation programs; • Transfrontier rhinoceros and tiger conservation; • Applied research on rhinoceros and tiger populations and their habitats, including surveys and monitoring; • Development and execution of rhinoceros and tiger conservation management plans; and • Compliance with applicable treaties and laws that prohibit or regulate the taking or trade of rhinoceros and tigers or regulate the use and management of their habitat.

Proposed project work should occur within the rhinoceros or tiger range, or, if work is to be conducted outside of the range, the proposal should show clear relevance to rhinoceros or tiger conservation.

If the project includes research, the applicant must provide a convincing argument that the results will address management needs or threats from disease and climate change and will result in management actions.
