Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am going to Honduras for two weeks in July 2018 to do charity volunteering. I will be working with Operation Wallacea (Opwall) which is a conservation research organisation that is funded by, and relies on, teams of student volunteers who join expeditions for the opportunity to work on real-world research programs alongside academic researchers.
We will be in the rainforest (Cusuco Park) surveying many different types of wildlife for a week and working on conservation projects. The Opwall survey teams have been working in Cusuco Park since 2003 and this has resulted in the park being listed in the top 100 most irreplaceable forest sites in the world. Fo the second week, I will be working on marine ecology projects. Opwall's marine research is aimed at understanding how best to improve the health of Caribbean coral reefs throughout the region.
I am doing a sponsored cycle from Cambridge to London (52 miles) on 4 November to raise funds for the trip and would really appreciate any donation you can make. It would make a huge difference.
