We made it! Thanks to everyone's support, we've reached our target, with still a couple of days on the clock! Thank you so much for your generosity, you can't imagine how grateful I am. We're about a week away from flying to South Africa, and we'll keep you updated on the trip as we prepare to head out into the field to join our slimy and crabby friends! I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely winter break with family and friends, and best wishes for the year to come! Thank you all!
