Burpees for Conservation

Hey 😊 Is anybody still looking to get that beach-body for summer, procrastinate on exam preparations, and wanting to do good at the same time?#BurpeesForConservation is a cool way to do all the three at the same time!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw0Dl-0T6nAThe concept is easy:You get somebody to sponsor you with 1 South African Rand for each burpee you do in the challenge-time (ten days from today) and then you just get going…Starting today, log as many burpees as you can on burpeesforconservation.com.The money collected goes to a project that trains and equips anti-poaching teams in the Greater Kruger national park area.Unfortunately, due to Covid and the missing tourists wildlife there is under immense pressure from locals as well as professional poachers at the moment.The challenge runs from today and for ten days from now. I am sponsoring myself and committed to doing 1000 burpees (Yes, I will definitely regret this!​​), but if you are not so much on the sporty side you can still help by sponsoring somebody else!My friends over at Africa Trails Co. are still looking for some sponsors, for example.Every little bit is greatly appreciated!If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask 😊Also, let me know if you are interested to join with burpees - I'd be happy to team up and support/motivate each other!I think it’s a great project and an amazing way to get funding and also have full trust in that the money goes into an cool project that uses it wisely!Have a great day and happy burping 😃

Prioritizing Project Focus Tool

Hello Community!  I am looking to see if anyone out there uses any sort of tool/framework/Rubric for identifying and prioritizing your conservation projects?  We are in the process of identifying what the conservation priorities will be for our organization and know we will need to develop some sort of mechanism to help us do that. We are aware of the tool used in the Open Standards, but just wondering if anyone else had something they had developed or a resource you could recommend.  Thank you!

DEFRA grant: Madagascar

Hi everyone, this grant seems like a great opportunity to perhaps pull together a team of people to deliver a unique, innovative and community empowering project.  We would love to be able to train up local communities in how to use drones for a range of purposes such as monitoring forests and radio-tracking wildlife so they can create alternative employment options based on conservation.  If this sounds like something that your organisation would like to include in an application for this grant then I'd love to hear from you! Cheers Debbie, Wildlife Drones (debbie@wildlifedrones.net)

About this room

In this room, we dedicate space to requests for help (e.g. surveys, expert knowledge) and to share opportunities to collaborate. 

Tips:

*) Be specific which help you require exactly. Add for example which questions you need answered, for surveys: specify closing dates and your target audience (who should complete it?). 

*) Be brief and to the point: add contact information if you like people to get in touch with you directly, but be mindful that this is a public forum and your contact details will be visible online, also to non-member audiences. 

*) Stay focused on a single topic per request or opportunity to increase clarity
