The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to conduct management driven research at French Frigate Shoals in the summer of 2018. A successful proposal will include a collaborative team of experts or scientists who will propose a body of research to address priority needs for management of key species such as sea turtles, monk seals, seabirds and coral in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (MNM) that will inform the management of these species both in the Monument and in the main Hawaiian chain. The goal of the Hawaii Conservation Program is to protect and conserve threatened and endemic species of Hawaii, from the slopes of Mauna Kea to the deep sea waters of Kure Atoll. This program builds on investments made since the early 1990s to support the conservation of Hawaiian forest birds, coral reefs and seabirds and expands to include other species like sea turtles, reef fish and monk seals across the main and northwest Hawaiian Islands to capture the full range for these populations across the archipelago.
