Diverse projects that were completed in the last 12 years have resulted in publications in scientific journals, popular educational products, and new information on native wildlife.

The second funding opportunity is the South Dakota Wildlife Action Plan Competitive Grants Program. GFP has set aside a portion of its State Wildlife Grants funds for fish and wildlife conservation proposals outside the agency.

Every state gets federal Wildlife Grants funding annually to help implement wildlife action plans that address the needs of wildlife and native habitats. Applicants must select from a list of potential topics.

The South Dakota Wildlife Action Plan Competitive Grants program is open to individuals, organizations, state and local entities, and educational facilities. Proposals will be accepted until Jan. 22, 2010. Application materials can be found at:
