Help to GoFund new Jaguar-Related Research

This is my first ever re-blog, and I’m happy that it is! I thought it was really important for me-as a young, aspiring conservationist and animal lover to support Josh on his GoFundMe campaign to raise money for his Master’s research in Guyana by sharing this on my blog.

If you care about conserving these majestic animals, please support Josh by donating or following his blog and research that he will undertake. I really think initiatives like this will contribute to the public’s involvement with conservation- and hopefully youth like me too. Conservation is not only about the animal involved, I’ve come to realize, but people’s perceptions and actions that eventually affect the survival of them in the wild. It’s really up to us to make sure future generations get to enjoy the kind of biodiversity we do.

My GoFundMe campaign is now live. For those who have not read my previous announcement, I am trying to fund as much of my field work as possible through donations from individuals like you. The reasons for this are both practical and idealistic.

First of all, I will have to leave for Guyana this summer: much earlier than I had realized. This leaves me with little time to apply for grants. Second, I want to…
