Describe the short-term outcomes, those anticipated to occur within the scope of effort and time span of the proposed project (e.g. completion of a workshop report, one or more peer- reviewed journal articles, an equipment prototype and report).
Marine mammal biology project
Introduction, Background, or Problem Statement: Provide a brief review of prior related efforts by the research team or others. Indicate knowledge gaps, shortfalls of previous efforts, or challenges to further progress and describe how the proposed effort will address these issues. If applicable, please include information about the species or population(s) of conservation concern or how the proposed work will increase the inclusion or representation of people from underrepresented groups in marine mammal research, management, or conservation.
Goals and Objectives: Provide statements of both the general or broad goal of the proposed project and the specific objectives that will be addressed within the scope of this proposal to make progress toward that goal. Provide your view of the importance or significance of the project, and how it relates to the Commission’s mission and goals.
Methods/Approach: Provide a detailed description of the methods so that the reviewer can understand how you will address the specific objectives of the project. If you are not conducting original research but are developing a workshop, review panel, or other activity; describe the nature of the activity, the planned agenda or working format, likely attendees/participants, and tentative dates and location of the planned activity.
Anticipated Outcomes: Describe the short-term outcomes, those anticipated to occur within the scope of effort and time span of the proposed project (e.g. completion of a workshop report, one or more peer- reviewed journal articles, an equipment prototype and report).
Research and Management Utility: Describe the anticipated long-term utility of the project, its implications for future research, management, or conservation activities, and how the results or other outcomes will better inform such activities.
