The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking applications for Central Africa Regional Program to conserve Central Africa’s most important wildlife strongholds, to support the region’s parks and other protected areas, and to address regional threats to wildlife.


The Africa Regional Program contributes directly to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior’s following priorities by securing wildlife and developing capacity to conserve high value landscapes that provide economic, geopolitical and other benefits:

  • Create a conservation stewardship legacy, second only to Teddy Roosevelt Central Africa is a globally important region for forest and wildlife conservation. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) works closely with national governments, U.S. agencies, and other partners to ensure a strategic, results-based approach to wildlife stewardship in the region. Proposals to this funding opportunity should focus on one of the following objectives: provide operational support for protected area management; support regional wildlife colleges and universities in Central Africa to train new cohorts of protected area staff; and support national and regional activities designed to reduce the illegal trade in protected species in the commercial bushmeat trade.
  • Achieve their goals and lead their team forward Projects should ensure that the most cost-effective approach has been taken to accomplish goals, objectives and activities. Proposal objectives should align with one or more of the desired results identified below under the relevant funding priority. Please see A Results-Based Vision for Conservation in Central Africa for greater detail on USFWS’ approach to wildlife conservation in Central Africa and how this funding opportunity aligns with the USFWS mission.
