We’ve discovered inspiring projects during our travels but this has been the most mind-blowing of them all: Marquesan school children managing their own marine reserves.
(See our previous posts, link at bottom… it’s the smartest way to protect the ocean that we’ve seen!)
To help fund this grassroots project – and their travel to an global conference in September to share their innovative ideas with scientists – we are asking you to help us raise a couple thousand dollars.
To express our gratitude to our donors we have selected handicrafts collected from our travels to raffle as gifts.
