Not a real one, but almost. With $4,050 raised, marine biologist and underwater photographer Jillian Morris will continue engaging kids in the Bahamas in shark conservation. Together with a VR experience, students from local schools will get 3D shark models to paint and keep. This creates a positive emotional connection with the sharks and is the first step towards ending the killing of 100 million of them per year.
Save sharks with Jillian.
How does an impacter spend $4,957? Research and animal rescues, of course! Primate conservationist Sam’s project is about the rescue and rehabilitation of wild animals confiscated from the illegal trade. He and his team also work with camera traps and GPS trackers to confirm the presence of the critically endangered San Martin Titi monkey in the local urban forest patches.

Knowing ways to protect wildlife is important not only for the animals/ insects, but important for us as a human species, too.
