Story

This summer, a group of twelve students from the University of Glasgow will be travelling to the island of Tobago to carry out conservation work with endangered frogs and marine turtles.

Turtle meat is a delicacy in Tobago and unfortunately, although illegal, poaching is a major problem on the island. Regular beach patrols are required to combat this and maintain turtle populations.

In addition to this we will be carrying out research into local amphibian populations, bat ecology and marine coral bleaching.

We will also be visiting local community centres and schools to raise public awareness of the ethical issues of poaching and declining wildlife populations.

The team has been working really hard all year to put on fundraising events but the cost of the expedition runs high due to specialist equipment required and the long duration of the expedition.

We hope to gain your support for our cause and help us create a safer, brighter future for the wildlife of Tobago.

Thank You!
