We are closer to our goal because of you

Dear Family and Friends, 

thank you so much for your support during our first Challenge Drive. Because of your support we were able to become a part of the Global Giving family of projects and to have a chance to be viewed by other supporters. Our goal right now is to be able, first and foremost, to send dolphin kin and blubber samples to a lab for analysis of contaminants. This is a critical step and the first step necessary to be able to understand the level of contamination of our dolphins, and what type of compounda are most prevalent.

We have over forty samples already collected from dolphins we have a know history for and we are ready to spring into action and send the samples to an analytical lab. However, we need more help to be able to do this. We have raised about $5000 so far with your help. The cost of each sample is approximately $1500, and can be higher if only a single sample at a time is sent. We need to raise money for at least 10 samples for us to proceed with analysis.

We are well on our way to our first goal of at least $15,000 to be able to start the project. We are continuing to rely on your generosity to make this happen.
