We are pleased again to announce that we have been supported with the important Young Explorers Grant given by the well-known National Geographic Society. This has meant an important push to our project, that joined with the Joxe Takolo grant gives us a lot of support.

Young Explorers Grants (YEG) help cover field project costs for hard-working, passionate, creative individuals with great ideas. They focus on the disciplines they are known for, and also on emerging fields that matter most to undestanding and improving the world they share.

Additionally, it provides opportunities to individuals ages 18 to 25 to pursue research, conservation, and exploration-related projects consistent with National Geographic's existing grant programs: the Committee for Research and Exploration (CRE), the Expeditions Council (EC), and the Conservation Trust (CT).
