I did not plan to be blogging here so much the last few days, but great news keeps happening. The last couple of hours has seen a surge of activity for #SciFund. with not one, not two, but three projects hit their funding goals!
- “Seahorse Adventures” by Lindsay Aylesworth
- “No Bogs, No Bugs, No Plants, No People” by Kristina Summers
- “The Amphibian Ranavirus Project” by Tess Youker
They are projects 18 through 20 to be fully funded! We’ve now funded 26% of projects in this round (a better funding rate than the National Science Foundation last year).
You can, of course, support any project you like – including those that have already met their target. If you want to support a project, you should pick one you are genuinely interested in and believe in. That said, these projects that are now getting close and would certainly appreciate a little extra attention:
“Confronting deforestation -northern Argentina” by Jennifer Romero: 89% done as of now.
- “The Face of Pain” by Simon van Rysewyk: 85% done.
“Resurrection ecology” by Mary Rogalski: 83% done.
There are only a few days left to contribute. If you can’t fork out cash, you can still help the cause by spreading the word. Every project has a Facebook “Like” button and a “Tweet this” button. Press those buttons, people!
Update: Mary Rogalski’s “Resurrection Ecology” has become project #21 to join the winner’s circle!
Even more updating: Jennifer Romero’s “Confronting deforestation” is also complete, making it the fifth project completed today. 22 down; 29% of projects this round funded!
