PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota officials are now accepting applications for the state’s wildlife diversity small grants program.

The program provides funding for researchers, educators and others to carry out projects that focus on native wildlife. The total funding available for 2015 projects is $20,000.

Tony Leif is director of the division of wildlife. Leif says that projects completed through the program over the past 18 years have resulted in numerous publications in scientific journals, popular educational products and new information on native wildlife species and their habitats.

Previous projects have ranged from the creation of a field guide to the Tiger Beetles of South Dakota to a study of raptors in the Black Hills.
