    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hello, i am really hoping you can help me raise the last £300 for my 4 week expedition as a Research Assistant to Mexico this summer. I have worked and raised £2,200.00 myself and just need help with the last £300.

    During the first two weeks of the expedition i will be based in Majan jungle, Calakmul. Calakmul contains diverse and abundant wildlife with many endemic species, this is one of the reasons Calakmul is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Culture and Nature. However, over the last 10 years the reserve has experienced a notable reduction in rainfall. I will spend two weeks monitoring data on birds, bats, herpetofauna, butterflies, ungulates, felids and primates to help evaluate the impact of climate change and changing rainfall patterns on the abundance of fauna to help determine when and where mitigation should be used to restore water sources.

    During the second two weeks i will be based in Akumal Bay. Tourism in Akumal Bay has steadily increased over the last 20 years, more hotels are being built to accommodate tourists leading to the; loss of important nesting habitats for turtles, loss of mangrove habitat that cleans water and prevents sediment from washing onto the reef and too many people snorkelling too close to the turtles.I will be conducting research focussed on assessing the efficacy of the newly formed marine protected area on the abundance and health of seagrasses and the impact of snorkel tours on the abundance, health and behaviour of sea turtles.

    If any of my friends could help by donating, it would mean the world to me and will help me to gain essential experience for my future career.

    Thank you, Megan x
