I am a graduate student finishing my master's thesis on acoustic communication and bat behavior. I work under the tutelage of Dr. Gloriana Chaverri, at the University of Costa Rica. I am requesting assistance because my previous funding within the university system has been used, and work opportunities are extremely limited under COVID-19, here in Colombia. And, if I were able to get a job, I would not have the time to finish the thesis by the deadline in March. My family situation is very complicated, to say the least, since my older brother, who has provided our home with financial support, got cancer at the beginning of the year. So, I am appealing to your generosity for any help you can provide. It would also be very helpful if you could share my campaign to your colleagues and friends.
