The Picerne Foundation funded the first two years of this program, and afterwards it was picked up by another non-profit, so it continues! Into it's 6th year. Thanks @Artist Outreach Project for helping make it happen!!

The Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation is sponsoring the second Global Sustainability Project in collaboration with the International Baccalaureate Program at Ocean View High School and the Earthwatch Institute.
The Picerne Foundation will provide scholarships for nine Ocean View High School students to participate in a teen expedition to South Africa this summer.
The goal of the program is: (1) to broaden students’ understanding of other cultures; and (2) to increase their awareness of global ecological concerns.
To accomplish this, students will spend 10 days on a game preserve in South Africa engaging with their peers and the local community as well as aiding research scientists studying ecological sustainability among Africa’s wildlife, particularly hyenas and other scavengers.
