Weʼre raising £1,500 to help fund Chelsey's research permit, so she can study wild chimpanzees in Tanzania!
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 currently study Animal Behaviour at LJMU and I have set up a 'justgiving' page to help me fund my undergraduate summer placement. I have been offered the opportunity to travel to Tanzania and work with chimpanzees. This is an amazing and rare opportunity, which would open up a huge range of options for me after I graduate.
My summer placement will range from 1-2 months, and I will be learning how to record and exhibit research with the Greater Mahale Ecosystem Research and Conservation project. My research will be focusing on the behaviour of wild chimpanzees in the surrounding area. I can then use this experience to write my dissertation in my final year of study. I have attached a link to the project so you can find out more about their great work! Click here!
The expensive and important part of this is my research permit, which costs around £1,500 and is essential if I hope to conduct research on primate behaviour over the course of my placement. My 'justgiving' page is set up as a way to help me raise the money for my research permit, so I can take part in the conservation and understanding of these amazing animals. I didn't expect it to be as expensive as it is, and without it I won't be able to go to Tanzania and experience this incredible and rare opportunity.
Any donation, no matter the size, will help me so much and I am unbelievably grateful to anyone who even takes the time to read this, let alone donate.
