Donations in kind

Project Seahorse also benefits enormously from your contributions of equipment and/or money, as follows (please send equipment and material donations to our Canadian address):

  • Donations of field guides, books, maps, posters, videos, slides and other educational materials on marine organisms, environments, and issues are always needed by field teams.
  • Your old dive mask would be welcomed on the Philippines project. It will be given to a Filipino seahorse fisher to recognise his or her involvement in seahorse conservation. Such masks increase comfort and safety when fishing and allow them to participate in management activities in marine sanctuaries. All dive masks can be used.
  • You can donate funds to support a high school apprenticeship in marine conservation in the Philippines. The village student receives money for school fees, books, uniform, and travel in exchange for spending weekends working with Project Seahorse.
  • In addition to financial support we need computers, airline flights, microscopes, telecommunications equipment, aquarium equipment, dive gear, two-way radios, solar panels and more for field work. Please contact us for details on our current needs and arranging for delivery.
  • Larger sums of money, in-kind donations and gifts such as securities, charitable annuities and legacy gifts are also welcome. Please contact us for more information.
