Empowering local communities to protect their mari

Introduction 

The Yucatan peninsula has a rich biodiversity that is threatened by the expanding development of the tourist industry. In only 35 years, the population grew 1220%! Development in most of the areas surrounding the reefs are having negative effects on the ecosystems and freshwater supplies, this is due to the lack of updated data regarding the marine ecosystems that can be integrated into the management plans.

Report 

Working with local partners, together we intend to identify, protect and preserve areas with high biodiversity, as well as those ones that are essential to maintain the ecological processes of the species. We are currently looking for $1000 to engage 100 local community members in our research efforts!

Yoshi returns to Australia

Introduction 

With a polluted ocean the increase in turtles that need rescuing and access to rehabilitation is constantly increasing. Our team provide the outreach and awareness within the community to ensure people know not to put a Turtle in the Ocean if washed up as they will not survive. Instead we fund a local emergency team to rescue these beautiful animals that often find themselves tied up in fishing line or eaten plastic and struggling to survive

Report 

This project is rescuing and rehabilitating turtles to prevent them from dying due to pollution in the ocean. The long term goal is to ensure these turtles to not become endangered. Check out our latest release in partnership with the Coast Guard Rescue and Local Aquarium. Yoshi was released and we tracked him all the way back to Australia!

Providing education in Laos!

Introduction 

In Laos, access to education and Socio-economic status are closely related. This is due to a lack of free education in Laos and is exacerbated for rural students, who do not have access to schools in the villages. As a result, many young students leave their families and move to larger cities for access to education. This is a very difficult thing for many of these children/teens as they have no way of covering the costs associated with studying and living whilst there.

Report 

We provide scholarships to students from rural areas to ensure equal access to education and in an attempt to close the poverty gap. $150 Will provide one student with access to education for a full year.
