Zoological Medicine in the Galapagos
Organized by: Kelsey Stover
EVENT DATE Mar 12, 2016
Hello! We are a group of 3rd year veterinary students who are traveling to the Galapagos Islands over our spring break in March. This trip encompasses a hands-on course with one of our professors in Equatorial Zoology and Medicine. The purpose of our trip is to gain experience learning about animals we don't often have the opportunity to observe; this includes lectures and field observations of sea lions, seabirds, finches, sea turtles, marine iguanas, giant tortoises, fishes, and invertebrates. The total cost for our travel/lodging/food expenses is $1910.00 per person. We created this page as a group to help raise funds to off-set that cost for each student. We also want to be able to support conservation and research in the Galapagos. From the total amount raised from this page, we will donate $100 of the proceeds raised to the Galapagos Science Center and $100 of the proceeds raised to the Galapagos Conservation Trust. After that, we will split the funds evenly between the members of the group. We're looking forward to the opportunity to gain experience with international veterinary medicine, and we appreciate and thank everyone who helps us!
