Wildlife Without Borders Mexico Program 2017

CFDA:
1 5. 641 Authorizing Legislation:
Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C.

1531-43) I.

Description of Funding Opportunity Mexico makes up only one percent of the Earthâ¿¿s land area, but is home to an impressive one-twelfth of all of the species known to

science.

A megadiverse country, Mexico is also a major center of origin and domestication of plants and a key flora and fauna dispersal corridor.

Its diverse habitats are among the richest reservoirs of biological material on the planet, including many seasonal residents that migrate to and from the U. S. and other areas.

Mexicoâ¿¿s astonishing natural diversity remains threatened by habitat loss and degradation, invasive alien species, wildlife trafficking and human-wildlife conflicts.

In response to these challenges, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the Service) together with the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources of Mexico (SEMARNAT) established the Wildlife Without Borders â¿¿ Mexico program, as a cooperative effort between the United States and Mexico to preserve our shared natural heritage.

Program Goal:
To conserve priority species, habitats and ecological processes across landscapes with high biodiversity value in Mexico.

Program Objectives:
1. To reduce the underlying threats to Mexican biodiversity by supporting the implementation of on-the-ground projects.

2. To conserve Mexicoâ¿¿s flora and fauna by strengthening the ability of local institutions, decision makers and civil society to deliver enduring conservation actions.

3. To maximize conservation impact by developing strategic partnerships with key stakeholders on the local, national, regional and international levels.
