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.

The MareCet Research Organization

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!
