Use of Funds
$8,000 TIPPING POINT GOAL
QTFN will take 10 Year nine students from remote and regional Queensland to our Avoid Island nature refuge for Flatback Bivouac.
Flatback Bivouac runs for 3 days at Avoid Island, with students working alongside respected turtle researchers to better understand the life-cycles of marine species. Delivered in partnership with Wonder of Science (WoS), Flatback Bivouac provides students with hands on experiences, observing turtles laying, scientific data collection and recording techniques.
$15,000 STRETCH GOAL
These funds will be used to purchase:
One Flatback Bivouac school camp plus a trip to Avoid Island for five emerging scientists from Queensland universities. Five keen undergrad volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in intensive scientific surveys to collect data on a variety of species at Avoid Island.
The students will assist us to build a comprehensive understanding of the variety of plants and animals that live at Avoid Island and the health of these populations.
Every donation is important to us – thank you for your support!
