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.

I am travelling to South Africa as a volunteer with Operation Wallacea, a charity funded research group whos main aim is to design and implement biodiversity and conservation managment research expeditions to monitor the marine and savannah habitats. This opportunity will enable me to survey large animal populations and evaluate their impact on vegetation as well as bird diversity. In addition i will complete a PADI diving course in order that i can study the impact of environmental change on the marine habitat. As i am interested in studying biology at degree level this once in a life time opportunity will provide me with invaluable hands on experience in addition to contributing to real research The research by Ooperation Wallacea is unique because unlike other surveys it is carried out on foot and in person and gives an accurate picture of the condition of habitats in areas of the world in orfer that issues can be identified and plans to manage these put into action before furthur damage is done. To help me finance this opportunity i would be very appreciative if you are able to sponsor my trip to make a difference to the impact of environmental change on habitats and to provise me with hands on experience in a field i wish to study at degree level.
