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 harborseals.org deserve that chance! We are the only high school in NYC with a marine curriculum and our school is 70% underrepresented 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 9-day trip to Colombia, where they will work with professors at the University of Magdalena in and around the famous water wilderness of Tayrona National Park, doing hands-on field research, sleeping in hammocks on the beach, and 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 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.
