AWI is now accepting applications for its 2021 Christine Stevens Wildlife Award grant program. Established in 2006 and named in honor of the organization’s late founder and long-time president, this grant program provides grants each year of up to $15,000 to researchers testing noninvasive wildlife study methods and nonlethal techniques to humanely remedy conflicts between humans and wildlife and prevent harm to wild animals resulting from encounters with human settlements and activities. A recently funded study that used sound signals to help birds avoid collisions with urban structures is described on page 13 of this issue.
Wildlife researchers across North America are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is May 28, 2021. Details on how to apply, application materials, and brief descriptions of studies funded in previous years are available at awionline.org/csaward.
