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 hhttp://harborseals.org/ny-harbor-seals-trip-2019-2020/
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 Gonsalez for a 9-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 $12,000 by January 1, 2020 (or we lose our deposits) and this GO FUND ME has to bring in $4000 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.
