Hello!! I am a masters of science student from the University of Maine who is seeking funding to travel to the World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. My thesis research is regarding visitor management in protected areas around the globe. The purpose of this trip is to facilitate my learning about worldwide conservation initiatives to enhance my education and my research. I hope to contribute to both the Congress itself through promoting tourism in Maine, and share what I've learned with the rest of the UMaine community upon my return. I am currently trying to cut the costs of the trip and am asking for your support!

The World Parks Congress is a significant conservation event held every ten years. The Congress sets an angenda for worldwide intitiatives to place protected areas into the context of communitites and local culture to inspire sustainable management solutions.  It hosts the worlds most influential people in conservation and protected lands, thus providing opportunity for me, as a student, to both assist my learning and make connections with key actors in my field.

I sincerely appreciate any and all support!
