Some really exciting things have been happening lately. The biggest announcement is that my crowdfunding project is finally live! I am calling on the community to help me shape the future of orangutan and sun bear conservation.
So many tourists visit Indonesia and Malaysia every year and many stay for weeks to volunteer to work with all different native species. Volunteer tourism is the future of eco-tourism. It provides people with the opportunity to interact first hand with species that are on the brink of extinction.
If volunteer tourism is shaped in the right direction it could have an enormous impact on conservation, education and awareness.
I hope that you will consider donating to make this research possible, and also remember that when you are donating, you are not only sponsoring this research but helping to educate the next possible generation of conservationists through my virtual field trip initiative.
If you donate and have kids, let me know in a comment and I can get you in on the fun of weekly virtual field trips into the jungles of Borneo.
I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you.
