MonarchJune 1, 2015 — The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has announced the release of the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Monarch Butterfly Conservation Fund (MBCF). Proposals are due July 15, and the full RFP can be found here.

The MBCF was established earlier this year to protect, conserve and increase habitat for these iconic insects as well as other pollinators. The fund was designed to leverage the investments made by federal agencies with additional funding from other private and public donors, as well as matching resources from grantees. Additional information on the MBCF can be found here.

Partners in the MBCF include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, the Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Monsanto Company.
