Weʼre raising £800 to Complete my funds for a trip to Costa Rica to volunteer doing turtle conservation.
- Chichester, UK
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.
In October 2018 I will be going to Costa Rica to volunteer to help with turtle conservation on Montezuma beach. Sea turtles are under risk of extinction due to reasons such as human urbanisation and interaction, including city lights and poachers (see this link for further explanation and reasoning: https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/sea-turtle).
The main tasks that need completing by me and many other volunteers are:
-Taking and recording measurements
-Construction of new hatcheries
**Please see here for further details on any of these tasks:
The reason I am fundraising for the rest of the funds for the trip is due to going to university in September to study Animal Science, making this an expensive time of year, therefore any extra funding would be very helpful to me.
Thank you so much for reading and for any donations!🐢🏝️
