Hi Sarah, great that you are joining WildHub. I was curious about your full background on wixsite, but unfortunately, the site gives an error.

This sounds great Sarah, a very good opportunity to contribute towards conservation of the Gambia’s Marine creatures, a great premise to learn conservation concepts and techniques whilst still providing an interesting experience to appreciate nature. 
I am very interested in this project, my cost will differ a little bit from yours because I am from Nigeria, a West African Country as well. But, I am still short on resources because I can’t afford to sponsor my trip to the Gambia because I am still an undergraduate and I have no job. 
It will be great if you/anyone can recommend the best way to get a funding opportunity to cover this trip. 

Hi, you can definitely access funding to participate in things like this. Here are two links from a quick google search:

https://www.advance-africa.com/1500-international-individual-grants-for-nigerians.html

You will need to research and find grants where you meet the eligibility criteria, and there are lots out there. It’s very time consuming applying for the right grants but worth it.  WildHub also have a great grant writing manual and course to help guide you to write successful grant proposals. I have fundraised my whole expedition to the High Arctic through grants and fundraising, I was more successful with lots of smaller grants offered in my own local area which all added up. This is the link my go fund me - if you read the donors and updates it will give you lots of ideas for fundraising etc.
