Wildtrax Study Abroad Trip

Hi friends & family,

I have been awarded the amazing opportunity to go abroad this summer to Botswana, Africa for 3 weeks to further my experience in the Animal Science field.

Unfortunately, it is a quite expensive trip, and my family can't pay for it on their own. My mom pays for my college on by herself, since my father isn't in the picture anymore. So, I wanted to see if I could raise some of the money on my own. The trip totals in $10,000, and I am hoping to save half of it myself and raise the other half.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where I would get hands-on experience meeting & learning from many different researchers, NGOs, and wildlife managers. This course includes both scientific and social aspects of data collection to prepare me for interactions with wildlife, communities and different cultures that I would not otherwise be able to get.

Any contribution would be GREATLY appreciated!
