Two NBCI partner projects, the Kansas Quail Initiative by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Tourism and Operation Outdoors by Tall Timbers Research Station and Mississippi State University, need your votes in order to win a $25,000 prize from the Future Forward Grant Contest, SportDOG Brand®. These two projects are two of seven under consideration for the $25,000 grant. The project receiving the most votes will be awarded the grant. After setting up a voting account, you can vote once per day until November 30. Start now by going to the SportDOG™ contest page on their website: www.sportdog.com/FFF.
The Kansas Quail Initiative is a major effort to restore bobwhite habitat as previously covered HERE, and listed on the SportDog website as Project 05. Project Outdoors, Project 01 on the website, is aimed at college students, providing them the opportunity to participate in research and learn about practical habitat management for bobwhites.
Both efforts are critical to bobwhite restoration, so NBCI urges you to vote daily.
