Marine Bio Field Expedition

The chance to pursue a research project can be life changing and career changing.
The hardworking students of Marine Bio at the New York Harbor School h 35943210_1574647035537063_r.jpeg deserve that chance! We are the only high school in NYC with a marine curriculum and our school is 70% minority students.  (Many of our kids have never been further than New York, so a trip like this will be full of new horizons.)

We are raising funds to send students with teacher Mauricio Gonzalez for a 10-day trip to Colombia, where they will work with professors at the University of Santa Marta in and around the famous water wilderness of Tayrona National Park, doing hands-on field research, sleeping in hammocks on the beach, hiking miles to remote locations for their experiments. This is a no frills, serious field expedition on a razor budget. The passionately dedicated students have themselves raised several thousand working week after week selling cookies! Your donation will make a major impact as we need to raise enough that every child, regardless of means, can go. Our goal is $17,000 by March 15, 2020 and this GO FUND ME has to bring in $6000 of that. 
The PTA is a 501 C3, so all donations are fully tax -deductible.
Moreover, our contribution will create a smile an ocean wide! 
Please help  this dream happen.
