SMALL GRANTS FOR LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN BANDING CERTIFICATION SESSIONS
The North American Banding Council (NABC) and Association of Field Ornithologists (AFO) are soliciting applications for small grants that support the development and certification of Latin American and Caribbean bird banders. Recognizing the integral role bird banding plays in ornithology and avian conservation, these funds are intended to (1) increase the pool of Latin American and Caribbean biologists certified by NABC and (2) promote NABC standards in bird safety and data quality through professional certification.
Funds will be made available in two forms:
- Groups organizing NABC certification sessions located in Latin America or the Caribbean that culminate in a certification opportunity.
- Latin American or Caribbean biologists attending a bird banding training program based on NABC standards and culminating in a certification opportunity.
