>Dear Colleague:
>The National Wildlife Federation's Species Recovery Fund
>seeks to encourage habitat restorations, species reintroductions,
>private land conservation activities, and other creative endeavors
>that directly improve conditions for species listed under the U.S.
>Endangered Species Act. During the past four years, National
>Wildlife Federation has awarded over forty grants to support
>innovative species conservation efforts.
>The Species Recovery Fund invites applications from any

>improve on-the-ground conditions for imperiled species.
>Preference will be given to local grassroots organizations.
>Grant awards will range from $3,000 to $7,000. Key criteria are
