Hi all, :)I'm raising money for the MareCet Research Organisation (marecet.org) through ERM Foundation Malaysia's Cash-Splash!ERM, the environmental consultancy I work for, through our employee-led ERM Foundation, is running a campaign through September to October to raise much-needed funds to help MareCet (Malaysia's only Marine Mammal NGO) raise funds to support their conservation research and operations.The main challenge that MareCet faces is the lack of resources.  With your support, MareCet will be able to expand and continue to perform their research and conservation work on marine mammals, marine education and outreach programmes.   MareCet has three (3) active research projects in Peninsular Malaysia: (i) Langkawi Dolphin Research (ii) Matang Dolphin Research, Perak (iii) Dugong Research and Conservation, Pulau Sibu, JohorDonate to the Cash-Splash and ERM Foundation pledges to match 75% of the total funds raised throughout this campaign which will go directly to MareCet!They are an amazing organisation run by truly amazing people! And I hope you will contribute to my drive through ERM Foundation's campaign to support this worthy cause."A drop in the ocean to you could make a whale of a difference!"

*UPDATE: Campaign's extended to 14th October! Need a bit more to reach the 2 weeks target!ERM, the environmental consultancy firm I work for, through the ERM Foundation, is running a campaign to raise much-needed funds to help MareCet continue our operations. For this campaign, I pledge to bring a dugong (as in the dugong hat - see the pic) with me where I go be it on the LRT to and from work, to meetings with clients, to outings with the family, and everywhere in between to raise awareness on the work that MareCet is involved in. As most of you know, I don't like attention and tend to stay in the background. I'm happy to forsake that comfort in the name of raising awareness on this issue, and I'd like to challenge you to lend me your support to get me to go through with it.                                           I co-founded MareCet with Louisa in 2012 to conduct research on marine mammals in Malaysia and using the data to help push for positive changes in the way we manage our ocean. Beyond the research and policy advocacy work, we also founded MareCet to provide a platform for aspiring marine biologists and future marine conservationists to learn and gain experience in this field. Seven years on, we now have a team of great people running three research programs, awareness campaigns, and participate in policy development activities on a local, national, regional and global levels.

We estimate less than 100 animals are currently left in the area, and we have already lost about 10% of them in the last 2 years.  Please help me reach (and hopefully exceed!) my fundraising target. My pledge duration is tied to the amount of money I'll be able to raise.  The more funds raised, the long I will wear this dugong hat daily:RM 3000 - two weeksRM 5000 - four weeksRM 10,000 - eight weeksThanks all!

George and Sim are young consultants focusing on Health, Safety and Sustainability (EHSS) services. We strongly believe that education or awareness is one of the vital puzzle pieces to solve climate change issues and create a sustainable future. Being part of the young working adults, we understand the struggle to find the balance between the expectations or responsibilities of younger generations to solve climate change issue as well as our own priorities and focuses. We will share how climate change is actually connected to our focuses such as impacts to socio-economic, human health, the ocean and biodiversity.Giving speeches or knowledge transfer presentations in front of big crowds has been a challenge for both of us. We hope that by having this challenge, we can get support from friends, family and the public to step out of our comfort zone to share our passion with the participants of our talks.  Giving is not just about making DONATION, it is about making a DIFFERENCE. Your kind support means a lot to us, please fundraise with us!

The Hughes sisters are coming together and going vegan for a month....which believe me, in Malaysia and Thailand, where we both live, is not easy!!! What's more, the Hughes' are the daughters of a former slaughterman and the sisters of a butcher.....we are expecting jibes and ridicule and hunger :p However, we are tough and determined to raise awareness and try to encourage more sensible decision making about where our food comes from. Lets support local farmers and local produce. Lets move away from plastic packaging. Lets live in a world that isn't on fire. Let the only fire be in your soul, the burning need to love and care for our planet. You can very easily demonstrate this by hitting our 'Donate' button and help us raise money for MareCet. A local Marine Mammal Research Organisation in Malaysia. The only one of its kind, committed to understanding and conserving our beautiful marine environment. Thank you!

Hi all, I've been passionate about marine mammals since 2004 at the age of 10. Fast forward 14 years later, I am still as passionate as ever. For my 24th birthday, I thought of doing something different. Instead of friends and families going out and buying gifts and discussing about what gifts to get for my birthday, I'm making it as simple as ever. All you got to do is donate! Donate to MareCet. I've been involved with MareCet since 2014 when I starting volunteering for one of the PhD candidates, Vivian Kuit. Ever since then, I volunteered as much as I could when I came home to Malaysia. In 2016, I finally got the chance to volunteer with another PhD candidate, Sandra Teoh and we went to Langkawi, Kuala Perlis and Kuala Kedah for the Langkawi Dolphin Research. That was the first time I saw dolphins in Malaysia and I knew that I needed to study them for my postgraduate research. I've also volunteered for MareCet at public events, creating awareness amongst the public regarding our Malaysian marine mammals. I am beyond excited to see what future work MareCet will carry out and I hope you will support this fund-raising event.

As an avid supporter of MareCet's excellent efforts in marine mammal conservation in Malaysia, I decided to take up a personal challenge to raise funds for their cause. I will stop shaving for three months, beginning in February in my efforts to garner support and raise funds for The MareCet Research Organization. Besides growing what I imagine to be an attractive beard, not shaving is rather green! No shaving creams needed, which means no extra shaving cans to litter our environment. Oh, not to forget I save water! With the recent drought, saving every little drop of water is essential. I have volunteered with MareCet a number of times, and have experienced their passion and dedication for marine conservation firsthand. They conduct research on dolphins, porpoises and dugongs to gain a better understanding of the animals' ecology and the threats that they face from human activities. And I learned that these animals are indicators on how healthy (or not) our seas are. Therefore at MareCet, their work on marine mammals act as mascots for MARINE CONSERVATION. In the end, we are part of the cycle - the state of our seas will eventually affect our lives on land. Your donation could help MareCet in the following ways: RM50 - helps with meals to sustain the research team in the field RM200 – could fund the cost fuel for the research vessel for one day RM500 – could fund the hire of the research vessel for one day RM1,000 – could help MareCet produce informational and educational materials for our awareness and education programmes RM2,000 – could help cover the living expenses of the research team on a single research trip RM10,000 - could help MareCet with the construction costs of their upcoming educational project which is the interactive Langkawi Dolphin Floating Exhibition (FLEX); FLEX will feature life-sized sculptures of a whale and dolphin, an interactive sound room, informative posters, and videos on the life of dolphins Please dig deep and donate, every little counts!
