Primate Conservation Research Volunteering

Thank you for visiting my page.In July I will be undertaking a 3 week unpaid volunteering project working on primate conservation in the amazon rainforest.I will be spending 3 weeks volunteering to help the scientists and conservationist from ARC Amazon, a non-profit organisation based in Peru. The objectives of the organisation are to "Increase the value of the amazon, to conserve and protect it, and to connect people with rainforests." As with lots of parts of the Amazon, the area I will be working in is under threat from logging industries and the growth of land for agriculture. As a result, many of the species native to the area are becoming increasingly under threat and closer to extinction. An example of one of these animals is the Peruvian black spider monkey (pictured). The organisation aims to protect this species of monkey, as well as 8 other endangered species by understanding the monkeys and making local communities and the rest of the world aware of the impact of them being wiped out. The research undertaken by the scientists working there helps Arc Amazon determine strategies for local conservationists in their aim to create a Biodiversity Corridor in an important river system in the north east of Peru on the border of Brazil and Bolivia. This local conservation will ultimately help conserve the species and environment in the Amazon, as well as protect the environment that the people who live and work there from illegal trade.I am a second-year Chemical Engineering student at the University of Bath with a strong interest in conservation. I have project led and participated in the Brecon Beacons National Trust volunteering residential undertaken by the university this year, and participated in it last year. I also have led other conservation activities with the National Trust in Bath and was nominated for the Bath Young Volunteer of the year award 2017. I enjoy adventures and being outdoors! The volunteering work that I will be involved with whilst I am there will include:* Following, observing and recording data about the wild monkeys.* Trekking through lowland Amazon rainforest in search of monkeys.* Recording and uploading data captured for analysis.* Assisting in the learning of the different monkey species and other fauna and flora species present in the monkey's habitat.* Helping protect the lands of the Indigenous people.I will also be witnessing first hand the deforestation, species loss and other threats to the rainforest as well as gaining an understanding of the successes and challenges of deforestation and thus be able to convey this message on my return. I would really appreciate it if you could help in this project by donating. It will really help with the vital research and assist in the conservation of the Amazon rainforest. As this is a volunteering trip, which is vital for the organisation as I am completely unpaid and have to pay the company to be there, I have to completely self-fund this trip. The money will be going towards paying for my food, water and travel whilst I am assisting the conservationists and scientists. Therefore your money will be going directly into helping conserve the Amazon and help everyone understand the amazing species of monkeys that live in the Amazon rainforest, so you will know exactly where your money is spent. Any money raised above the costs of participating in the projected will be donated directly to the organisation to help fund further research and conservation.Please click to make a contribution, or get in contact with me to learn more about the project, donate via paypal or bank transfer please email me at jt740@bath.ac.uk.For more information on the charity, please visit http://conservetheamazon.org/arcamazon/#mission To read some of my blog posts about the species that I will be working with, check out my blog at: http://www.trottingtonsblog.com/category/blogs/amazon/

STRAY ANIMALS IN SERBIA NEED YOUR HELP

STRAY ANIMALS IN SERBIA NEED YOUR HELP

We are association of citizens Alfa from Belgrade and we have been taking care of abandoned dogs and cats for many years. We found homes for over 150 animals.We don’t have any means of financing except for good people who are helping us. Unfortunately, there is not enough of them and we find it hard to manage our expenses.At the moment we are raising money to pay for boarding houses for   20  dogs and one pig which costs about 650  euros, without the food. All the dogs in boarding houses were sick, hurt or taken from a shelter in order not to die there. Pig was save from floods in Obrenovac two years ago.Let me sort out some of them.Maki is a dog we found immobile in a ditch near the road. He had a broken spine and a bullet from a blowpipe. He is our miracle because he managed to walk in spite of that condition.We found Flekica (‘Little Stain”) as a puppy with the hard form of demodex (a skin condition).Vuka , Zuca , Brka , Viki , Pegica , Masa , Bleka , Pega , Meda , 3 Puppies , Stefi , Mirko , Crni , Milka , Lara , Flekica , Maki , Zuca2 , Cupko , Gile .We have more animals in foster homes , and we provide food for them.Therefore, we are addressing you with the pleading to help as much as you can. Out work is completely transparent, every dog can be seen and visited. Each of them deserves a chance to live, and we are asking you to help us provide them with that chance.Regarding our future plans, we need the money for sterilization of the dogs, in order to reduce the number of the dogs on the street. We need the money for the food for all the dogs we take care of. We need the money for paying veterinary expenses for the sick and injured dogs.If we had more means we could take care of more dogs and cats from the streets and find them real homes later on. We are very limited by the donations we raise through social networks, which are more than humble,so with your help we can do much more.

Hera's IVDD Surgery and Recovery

Hera's IVDD Surgery and Recovery

VERSION FRANCAISE CI-APRESENGLISH VERSIONOur adorable 4-year-old dachshund Hera's hind legs were suddenly paralyzed on Sunday the 5th of February. After rushing to a veterinary clinic, she was diagnozed with intervertebral disc disease (IVDD) type 4 (paralysis, but still sensation in hind legs). We were unaware of this genetical disorder until the day of these events, and 25 % of all dachshund are victims of it, normally between ages of 4 and 6. We had the choice of either going for the disc surgery immediately (with 80 % probability of Hera being able to walk again), or going for heavy medication forcing her to stay immobile for 8 to 12 weeks, and with 30 % probability of being to walk again. This option also meant a great risk of the condition returning later in her life. The chances of recovery depend on the delay of the surgery (up to a maximum of 48 hours); the more waiting time, the less is the chance of walking again...We chose the surgery option, because we cannot live without this little creature, who fills our lives with lots of love and hugs since 4 years. We wanted to give her the best possible chances to live a normal life again.The purpose of this money pot is to finance the operation cost (2000 €), and the recovery cost which is estimated to be between 10 and 15 days (250 € per day). The payment will be divided into several parts, which gives us time to raise and save the necessary money.All sums of contribution will be greatly appreciated.We thank you in advance with all of our hearts.Elodie & SimonInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/hera_dachshund_ivdd/ VERSION FRANCAISEAmis amoureux des animaux nous appelons à votre gentillesse et bienveillance.Notre adorable teckel Héra de 4 ans s'est retrouvée du jour au lendemain (le dimanche 5 février) paralysée des pattes arrières. Après avoir couru le plus rapidement possible chez une clinique vétérinaire ouverte, le verdict est tombé : Héra a une hernie discale de type 4 (paralysie mais sensation dans les pattes arrières toujours existente). Cette maladie génétique, que nous ne connaissions pas précedamment, touche 25 % des teckels entre leur 4ème et 6ème année.Nous avions le choix soit de l'opérer immédiatement avec 80 % de probabilité qu'elle puisse remarcher par la suite soit de passer à la médication lourde et une immobilisation totale de 8 à 12 semaines qui lui donnait 30 % de chances de remarcher (et un risque d'aggravation). Le pourcentage de chance que l'animal puisse remarcher depend de la rapidité d'action (jusqu'à 48h)... plus le temps passe, plus les chances de récupération de mobilité s'attenuent.Nous avons fait le choix de l'opérer car ne nous pouvons pas vivre sans ce petit être qui nous partage nos vies en nous couvrant d'amour et de calins depuis plus de 4 ans. Nous voulons lui donner toutes les chances possible de retrouver une vie "normale".Le but de cette collecte va servir à financer le coût de l'opération (2000 €) et de la réhabilitation estimée entre 10 et 15 jours (250 € / jour). Le paiment va être divisé en plusieurs fois ce qui nous laisse du temps de collecter et économiser au maximum sur les prochains mois.Toute participation sera grandement appréciée.Nous vons remercions par avance de tout notre coeur.Elodie & SimonInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/hera_dachshund_ivdd/

Daniel's dog school

Daniel's dog school

Welcome! I'm running a school for dogs, the only one in my city. Unfortunately, expenses are big, and the fees we take from the "clients" must stay low, we can't use the school to get rich, even if it were possible. We just love the dogs too much! Our methods are purely positive, we use no physical force or beating like some other schools still do. This way is a little longer, but has much better effects on our four legged friends. However, higher prices will make our services too expensive for dog owners, and if we don't raise them, well, we will have to close the school very soon. It's not exactly a charity, but we believe it's a good cause. If we make this more commercial, it won't work for the dogs the way it does now. We train them mostly individually, because the effects are better this way. But we can't train more than 5 dogs per day, the trainer simply has her limits.. it's very exhausting to focus for so many hours and yet keep the work at the highest level. So, we ask you for some help to keep the school running. We must pay for the hall, lights, power, cleaning, taxes are big too. And the trainer can't do the work for free for all her life, she also has 2 dogs, one is an Australian Kelpie (the real "Red Dog"!!) so it has his needs, and the other one is very sick. It costs her a lot to keep the dog not only happy, but simply alive. Meds are very expensive. So my wish is I could keep the school running, and pay the trainer a little bit more for her very hard and difficult job. She's not only a trainer, but also a behaviorist. Therapies are longer than ordinary training, and most people having trouble with their little buddies just won't be able to afford any higher fees for the help. Plus, the trainer also needs to take some classes, that are pretty expensive :( Please, contribute! Thank you in advance! --Daniel
