Great White Shark Internship - S. Africa

I have been accepted to participate in a truly once in a lifetime internship studying Great White Sharks. Oceans Research in Mossel Bay, South Africa offers interns a chance to tag, monitor and gather data to help protect Great White Sharks and other animals in their habitat. These top predators keep their ecosystems in check but are being severely threatened by human impacts. Lost of such an important species would be catastrophic to the ocean's health.   
Please help me raise the funds so I can accept this offer. This opportunity would increase my hands on experience with tagging and monitoring immensely which will help as I strive towards my future career goals.  

I will take lots of photos and set up a blog/ vlog so that I can share my experiences with you and anyone else interested. 

**For all my teachers out there or parents that are PTA members I would be more than happy to pen pal/ video chat with your class while I am over there. Let's inspire the future Marine Biologists of the world!

 

The total cost includes my round trip airfare to South Africa, travel insurance, room and board, supplies, transport costs and other various expenses. This would not only be a dream come true but an immeasurable asset to my continuing education.

 

Thank you so much for your help!
