I am writing you today because the US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management is announcing a funding opportunity for new wild horse and burro related research partnerships with universities, other federal, state, or local agencies, tribal, or non-governmental organizations. Please share this message with colleagues in and outside of your institution.
The BLM is seeking research proposals from scientists who can develop new research projects that support the goals outlined in its 2021 Strategic Research Plan, and described in a related blog post. The process for proposal submission is different for non-federal, as opposed to federal researchers. Federal researchers should respond to the Request for Proposals for Federal Agencies: Wild Horse and Burro Research, and non-federal researchers should respond to the parallel Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO): L22AS00069; Wild Horse and Burro Research for non-federal researchers. All qualifying proposals will be evaluated by scientific review panels, composed of external peer reviewers. Deadline for submissions is January 18, 2022.
Because of the need for more effective population growth suppression, the BLM’s top research priority remains the development of safe, practical, effective and long-lasting fertility control methods for wild horses and burros. The BLM’s secondary research priority is to improve understanding of the relationship between wild horses and burros and their environment, including how climate change will impact management and protection.
The BLM is not funding other, lower priority, wild horse and burro research topics at this time. Those include estimating herd size and demographic modeling; population genetics; animal health, handling and welfare; private care placement; and the human dimension (socio-economic) of wild horse and burro management. However, the BLM accepts unsolicited research proposals at any time. Unsolicited proposals addressing those or any other topics are typically evaluated by a technical team, which solicits external peer review as needed; unsolicited projects are approved based on merit, responsiveness to agency management needs, and available funding.
Thank you for considering this opportunity, and sharing with any colleagues, as appropriate.

Forwarding on behalf of Jason Kwan, Director, ASUCD Pantry
Hope y'all are doing well!
I am excited to announce that this Sunday (11/21), the ASUCD Pantry will be collaborating with Yolo Food Bank to distribute 600 meal kits to Davis residents! Starting at 9 AM, interested households can come to the UC Davis Parking Lot 2 (right by the Mondavi Center) and receive Holiday Meal Kits (containing a turkey and other classic Thanksgiving "fixings") via drive-through on a first-come, first-served basis.
I have attached a flyer below; please distribute it widely with your networks! We want to make sure that everyone who needs it hears about it. In addition, here's more information on the event: https://yolofoodbank.org/holiday-food-distribution/
I write to request that you please forward this message broadly to the faculty, students and staff in your department. This is an issue that we cannot meet with complacency. We are currently at 800 signees, and I think we ought to be able to do far better for a campus our size.
A number of UCD faculty, students, and staff led by Professor Stephen Wheeler (human ecology) have developed a Fossil-Free UCD petition, which officially launched to coincide with the start of COP26 in Glasgow. COP26 has now concluded with comprises and promises that are putting us on a path for global warming in excess of 2.4 degrees Celsius. In light of this failure it falls to organizations such as ours to step up to become a global leader in eliminating use of fossil fuels and show this can be done.
Please sign the petition. You’ll find it here: tinyurl.com/fossilfreeUCDpetition
Then please share this widely with your labs, your colleagues on campus, announce this to your classes and post on your social media accounts.
Further info is at our new Fossil-Free UCD website, https://fossilfreeucd.org. Thanks to Roberta Millstein for creating that site.
We will meet with Chancellor May later this Fall to present the signatures of this petition and ask him to lead our campus through the next, critical phase of the climate emergency by creating a plan to stop using fossil fuels to run our campus. Technically this is a challenge that we can meet, if we can muster the will and leadership to do what is right.
