What did Seacology need?

Sarah helped Seacology by conducting research on potential prospects.

Why is this project important?

We are about to launch one of the biggest projects in our organization's history and we need to ramp up our fundraising to get it underway!

This project will save us $2,494, allowing us to invest money directly in our environmental conservation projects.

What did Sarah have to offer?

I am a young professional interested in responsible business, particularly in the natural resources sector. I have several years of experience working with NGOs in the US and Thailand and understand intimately the financial challenges small organizations in particular face and the important role that volunteers can play in addressing those issues. I have a BA in Geography (2011) and an MA in Development Studies (2017).

What did they have to say?

Sarah was fantastic! She provided great research, was flexible and patient during the challenging circumstances of covid-related workflow interruptions, and listened to our needs. She's a great volunteer!

I deeply respect Seacology's approach to working with local communities to address critical conservation needs, and it was a pleasure to support them through this prospect research project! Erin in particular was very thoughtful and kind and I enjoyed interacting with her. I also appreciated how flexible she was throughout the project as my personal circumstances changed.

About Seacology

Seacology protects island habitats and assists local communities by offering villages a unique deal: if they agree to create a forest or marine reserve, we'll provide funds for something the village needs, like a schoolhouse or health clinic. Since 1991, we've launched over 300 projects, working with villages on islands in over 60 countries, helping to protect approximately 1.3 million acres of some of the world's most vulnerable ecosystems.
