    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    Please help me raise the money to spend 6 months with this incredible organisation. The critical data I am looking to collect will be given to the Costa Rican government to help them to make important conservation decisions and ensure the survival of the biodiversity of this unique area of the Tortuguero rainforest.

    Projects that I will be involved in include:

    Monitoring and Conservation of Sea Turtles: Recording important conservation data on nesting for a range of marine turtle species including hawksbill, green, and leatherback.

    Marine Turtle Predation by Jaguars: investigating the impact of Jaguar populations on sea turtle populations.

    Jaguar, Mammal and Prey Species Abundance Study: setting up camera traps, and conducting transects that record tracks and signs in the National Park forest.

    Resident and Migratory Bird Research: Monitoring 30 key aquatic bird species to collect long-term seasonal trend data on resident and migratory birds on canoe based surveys.

    Biological Assessment Survey (BAS): The aim of the BAS study is to identify all species of Amphibia, Aves, Mammalia and Reptilia across trails encompassing the four major habitat types around Jalova biological station, to provide important data necessary to understand and preserve the local ecology and find a balance between human needs and those of all other species inhabiting Tortuguero National Park.
