About

My name is Sam Thompson and I am a Durham University student studying Finance.

I am extremely excited to be part of a team of 14 Durham students who are travelling to Borneo to volunteer for two amazing conservation projects for two charities - Fuze Ecoteer and Project Orangutan.

We will be spending 2 weeks with Fuze-Ecoteer with their Sea Turtle project – carrying out beach clean ups, night patrols and snorkel surveys. We will also be running an environmental awareness day for a group of school children. Next we will be travelling to the Matang Wildlife Centre, where we will spend 3 weeks with Project Orangutan, carrying out a variety of tasks such as husbandry, construction work, enrichment and farming. 

As a part of my fundraising, £1000 will be directly split between the charities. Although direct monetary donations are extremely important to ensure the longevity of the charities, without volunteers actively helping, this money cannot be properly utilised. Therefore the rest of the money raised will be put towards travel costs and all other expenses allowing me to actively take part in the ongoing projects out there to ensure a real difference is made.
