The funds will be used for as follows.
2,500$ goes the Protrack company: for the 6 week course for training, lodging and uniform expenses for the 6 months volunteer duration.
1,700 to 2,000$ goes to the roundtrip ticket (economy class of course) from the continental U.S. to Hoedspruit Airport. (if anyone has cheaper solutions/suggestions, please inform me)
500$ goes to gear not issued but required to bring, ie quality military boots, binoculars, bus fare, visa fees and 1 day stay at a inn before the 6 week training course commences.
Training courses are conducted once every few months at a time. I am aiming to attend on January 10, 2018. If however I am unable to obtain all of the funds prior to 2 weeks before Jan 10, I will attempt to attend April 11, 2018's course.
I would appreciate all forms of support, donations or spreading this campaign to others. It would show both the members of Protrack and I, that you are passionate about preserving the rhino species from extinction. Although I cannot take photos of my experiences to share to you. (due to safety and security reasons) I will be updating this campaign constantly, with progress reports and such. If anyone has questions, or would like furhter detailed info, do not hesitate to ask! and thank you for taking your time out of the day to read this.
