NFWF Bring Back the Natives

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S.D.A. Forest Service (FS), and Trout Unlimited (TU), annually requests proposals from nonprofit organizations, universities, Native American tribes, and local, state, and federal agencies interested in restoring, protecting, and enhancing native populations of sensitive or listed aquatic species, especially on lands on or adjacent to federal agency lands. The end result is on-the-ground restoration, in-stream improvements, and growing partnerships for the benefit of aquatic systems and their native species in the nation's watersheds. Funding for the Bring Back the Natives (BBN) program is administered through NFWF from federal agencies cooperating to support this program. This funding results a $2 non-federal match for each federal dollar requested by applicants. Since 1991, 380 projects have been awarded through BBN. A total of $18.4 million in Foundation funds has leveraged an additional $49.5 million in non-federal matching contributions. Projects funded through BBN have restored habitat for a number of listed species; protected and enhanced habitat for small, stable populations of native aquatic organisms; and contributed to keeping several species from being listed.
