Hi! I am Yrla Mey Santander and I am currently a budding researcher in the University of the Philippines. I mainly work on marine fisheries which I find very essential especially to our country's fisherfolks. I conducted a research on filter nets in Iloilo Strait which was mainly focused on the amount of catch gathered and the amount of profit earned by the people who employ filter nets. I submitted an abstract of this study to the International Fisheries Symposium which will be held on 18-21 November 2018 in Hatyai, Thailand. However, as a young researcher, I have no other sources of fund that can allow me to attend the said conference. This opportunity will not only help me in my personal career but it is also a venue that can provide us with insights on how to help alleviate the poverty especially in the small fisheries sector in the Philippines.
Rest assured, every penny from each donor will be worth it and acknowledged.
Your assistance is highly appreciated.
With my sincerest thanks,
