About this cause

About our cause

Operation Wallacea is a massive organisation in many locations across the world which is involved in managing and protecting wildlife and biodiversity. The site in Honduras aims to protect the cloud forests from deforestation and instead is aiming to conserve its biodiversity and to also increase the area which the forests span. I am hoping to join the group of highly experienced forest research scientists in Honduras to hopefully make a positive impact in the protection of plant and animal life of the forests. I will be working as a Research Assistant and this will also allow me a great opportunity to gain experience in field work; something I have always wanted. I am an undergraduate from Edinburgh University and this is my final year of Molecular Genetics Honours. Following university, I am hoping to do a PhD, followed by research. Two areas of researh I am currently interested in are biofuels and discovering greener, more sustainable and less damaging ways of living. Secondly I am also very interested in cancer research. Cancer therapies depend upon the natural biodiversity of forests being protected and conserved - there are many drug molecules which have not yet been discovered (Opwall has discovered many new species) and this depends on the forests being protected. Operation Wallacea's projects and long-term aims are vital for the future and the protection of plant and animal species is very close to my heart. I need as much help as possible in raising the money to go, as I'm sure you can imagine, this is quite an expensive undertaking.
