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.
My name is Orsi and my passion is animals and their conservation, especially the Lemurs of Madagascar. Unfortunately these cute and exquisite creatures are not doing well in the wild at all. Their habitat has been destroyed so much that 90% of the species are currently classified as Endangered or Critically Endangered.
In the last few years I've been working hard to get a job working with animals by volunteering and taking up related courses. Now I have a dream opportunity to work in Madagascar in the wild where my favourite animals live! After volunteering there for three weeks, I have been offered a self funded Research Assistant position for three months (It might be extended by another 3!)
By doing behavioural studies and animal surveys we can gain a better understanding of lemurs and how to help them, the local communities and their environment.
Living there is not expensive, so every penny makes a difference to me, but the travel costs and other expenses (I have to pay a quarterly fee for my stay there, insurance, medication, some equipment) are quite heavy.
I'd like to say thanks to everyone in advance for any donation in the name of the Lemurs :)
