Remember Michelle Carpenter (Research Fund 23/01), who received some funding from us a couple of years ago?
Michelle just reached out and told us that the manta ray project has gone well so far. They identified a new manta ray hotspot and are building up the database. However, given the logistics with studying an aggregation that is a 40 km boat ride, the data collection is going slowly and requires a field trip this coming April for two weeks. We simply couldn’t leave Michelle hanging, so we wired her 250 euros.
