Haven't backed any projects yet! 

Thank you so much Anand! As we only have a couple of days to go, we are planning to extend the fund raising so we have a better chance of reaching our target. Fingers crossed.....

Hi Sherri Thanks for your interest! Right now we are still at the funding stage of our project - until we know what funding is coming in (to be finalized on January 7th) we don't know exactly how we will move forward. For example, I can't offer a student a position and raise their hopes if we then don't get the full funding and can't pay them. That said, we are ready and (anxiously) waiting. Our iNaturalist page has been discussed and is ready to go, we are just waiting to see how many species we will include. The STEM Festival is in its final stages of organization and we are discussing how to present our project with the organizers. I have talked to a variety of experts who are ready to come on board to provide identifications and advice. But without the funding, none of this can go forward. Not sure what other progress I can share with you until then. Hope you have a fun festive season All the best Kit
