RFP for Oiled Wildlife Research
- The Oiled Wildlife Care Network (OWCN), a collaborative program between the CA Department of Fish and Game Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) and the Wildlife Health Center at the University of California at Davis� School of Veterinary Medicine, is currently seeking research proposals from wildlife professionals interested in furthering OWCN goals for the 2011 � 2012 funding period. In particular, proposals investigating the direct and indirect effects of oil on wildlife, baseline biomedical studies and improvements to oiled rehabilitation techniques are strongly encouraged.
A maximum of $250,000 is available for proposals and projects may be multi-year in nature; however, annual application, provision of complete and timely progress reports, and competitive review are required. For projects requesting $10,000 or less for a single year, the pre-proposal will suffice as the complete application. For investigators requesting greater than $10,000 or for multiple years of support, should the pre-proposal be favorably reviewed, a full proposal will be required.
Parties interested in seeking funding should submit a pre-proposal to the Wildlife Health Center by post or e-mail no later than 5:00 pm (PST) on 6 May 2011 (Pre-Proposals) or 29 July 2011 (Small Grant Proposals) (Note: this is not a postmark deadline). Late pre-proposals, or pre-proposals not adhering to this format, will not be reviewed.
