Migratory Bird Management
Notice of Funding Availability Number F15AS00057
The goals of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Migratory Bird Management Division are to protect, restore, and manage migratory bird populations. The Pacific black brant is a Tier 1 Priority Species for the Alaska region of USFWS and considered extremely important to subsistence and recreational waterfowl hunters. 80% of these brant overwinter in Mexico and it is essential that the USFWS obtain annual population estimates to assess recreation and subsistence harvest and non-hunting mortality. This financial assistance opportunity is being issued to Terra Peninsular, A.C. because of their professional knowledge, skills and abilities to conduct the required ground-based and boat-based surveys to assess the distribution and abundance of Pacific brant overwintering in Baja California and along the west coast of mainland Mexico.
