Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Washington and British Columbia nonprofit organizations, agencies, educational institutions, Tribal entities, and international organizations for marine animal conservation in eligible regions. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to submitting a full proposal. The majority of awarded projects will focus on the habitats used by the SRKW population of the Salish Sea. Proposals that work in other locations are eligible for funding, but priority will be given to projects focused in the northeastern Pacific Ocean.

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc., the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are pleased to announce continued support for the effective implementation of three key strategies to aid in the recovery of the Southern Resident killer whale (SRKW) Distinct Population Segment. The program will award funding this year for SRKW conservation and may also support catalytic projects in other killer whale populations.

Conservation strategies for this program include:

  • Increase prey availability: support projects that increase availability of key salmon runs that are a critical part of the Southern Resident population’s diet.
  • Improve habitat quality: support projects that reduce threats to priority killer whale habitat from pollution and contaminants, vessel traffic and noise.
  • Strengthen management through research: support research to improve monitoring of demographics and distribution, health assessments and effectiveness of management actions.

For more information on the above strategies, see https://www.nfwf.org/sites/default/files/2021-02/KillerWhales-2021-RFP.pdf#page=2.
