This project continues to struggle to raise funds with $2,534 raised to date. Fundraising for this project effectively ceased in December 2017 with the $420 raised since then based on regular, recurring donations. The additional $420 raised since the last update was used to reimburse costs for the historic first community-based reef survey in Oman (see report March 2017). We will continue with this for as long as regular donations are being received.

Thank you to all donors so far. We appreciate your support. Rest assured that any more funds coming in will be used to further community-based conservation and capacity-building in our areas of operation, in particular supporting our on-going placement program.

This project continues to struggle to raise funds with $2,114 raised to date. We will go for a last push in December before the project closes at the end of 2017. The additional $347 raised since the last update was used to reimburse costs for the historic first community-based reef survey in Oman (see report March 2017).

Thank you to all donors so far. We really appreciate your support. Rest assured that any more funds coming in in December will be used to further community-based conservation and capacity-building in our areas of operation.

Please give generously in December before this project closes on 31 December 2017.

This project continues to struggle to raise money with only $1,767 out of the $10,000 goal raised so far.

The additional $761 raised since the last quarterly report in July 2017 were used to support placements on our snow leopard conservation expedition to the Tien Shan mountains of Kyrgyzstan and to train local people in how to use camera traps. The aim of the placement programme is to train the next generation of local conservationists. Local people are trained so that they can be integrated into snow leopard conservation efforts. Eventually our aim through these two programmes is to create a community-based snow leopard conservation programme in the Kyrgyz Alatoo range of the Tien Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan.

This project continues to struggle to raise money with only $1,006 out of the $10,000 goal raised so far. 

The additional $600 raised since the last report were used to support graduates of last year's capacity-building program in the Maldives and Oman to start up their own NGOs, called "Reef Check Maldives" and "Reef Check Oman" respectively, build websites for them and assist them in organising reef surveys and conservation activities and to start local fundraising efforts.

More details are in the links given, which include press releases about the activities, as well as newly-built websites for Reef Check Oman and Reef Check Maldives.

Only $400 have been raised so far for this project. This was spent on boat hire (including tanks and equipment hire) for an historic first community-based reef survey near Muscat, Oman. This involved one of the communities that we want to direct our fundraising efforts towards. The hire was actually OMR 350 (USD 909). The remainder was covered by Biosphere Expeditions and will be reimbursed if/when more funds are raised.

There were no other activities due to the lack of funds, but more efforts will be extended to raise more funds in the coming months.

Thank you to all donors so far. Please keep giving generously.
