Helping a young postdoc help elephants

Shermin de Silva just finished her PhD. Now she wants to continue her research on Asian elephants, the lesser-studied cousins of African elephants. Her goal? To understand how local farmers and elephants live together.

Shermin has raised half of her $7K budget – but she only has three days remaining on her challenge. If you are willing to support a young woman in pursuing her dream of conservation research — and help her train and support Tharanga, a young Sri Lankan research assistant, who will hopefully develop the biology bug too — please consider contributing to this unconventional postdoc through the SciFund challenge.
