Our Wish List
Dear Generous Benefactors
First and foremost, WSORC and the whale sharks would like to thank you for your support. Your donations assist scientific research, marine aquatic natural resource conservation/restoration and education/awareness efforts.
Here at WSORC, we understand that different people have differing financial situations and differing interests in what they would like to donate. We therefore respectfully submit to you our Donation Wish List. This list spans various categories, including office supplies, field and laboratory needs.
Please be assured that every and any type of donation helps us here at the Center. Small items are often times as important, if not more so, than larger items. We appreciate your generosity.
If you do choose to donate an item, the addresses of where to ship your donations are listed below. Notice there is a different address for magazine or smaller items than for larger packages.
When you send your package, please also send us an email describing what you sent and when. Any associated tracking numbers would be helpful as well. This will help us ensure that your donations do not get lost on the way to our somewhat remote island. Email correspondence should be sent to email@example.com. Please email us to let us know to expect/track a donation.
Other options - You can bring items with you on your next trip to Utila, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
