Help Send Dr. Dawn to Bhutan!

 The Royal Thimpu College (RTC) invited me to the Kingdom of Bhutan as a visiting scholar for a year! I am the only female professor to be invited to join the faculty of their Environmental Studies Dept. teaching Ecology, Biodiversity and Conservation courses. I am honored and want to make this happen. But I need your help to cover the costs of travel, insurance, and vaccines for me and my two sons.

 Located between India and China, Bhutan is a landlocked Himalayan country known for their self-imposed mandate to keep at least 60% of the land under forest cover, as well as their commitment to Gross National Happiness. Bhutan is moving past sustainability and is the only carbon negative country in the world, sequestering more carbon than they produce.  Please help me go and make a difference synthesizing science to inspire and educate the next generation of environmental leaders!

If you donate, I'll send you a slideshow and updates with the highlights of our environmental and cultural adventure, including my blog, facebook and instagram. Thank you so much for helping me fulfill my dreams! 

Costs for Dr. Dawn and her two sons (Elliot age 11, and Xander age 13)
Flights to Bangkok, BKK to Bhutan $4,250
Health Insurance $3,000
Vaccines $5,550 (Rabies and Japanese Encephalitis)
Grand total: $ 12,750

I also want to document with a video and audio set up - let me know if you have brand or buying suggestions! Would love to have you visit us too!
