We’re really excited about our upcoming citizen science project, My Science, My Conch, and are working hard to get the funding we need to make it happen. MSMC really focuses on the community aspect of our work and conch conservation, so we thought it be fun to see what kind of support is out there in the community! Our Crowdrise fundraiser will allow you to donate directly to this project through our fiscal sponsor, Rachel’s Network. You can find out more details about MSMC on our Crowdrise page. It’s super easy, and we appreciate donations large and small. If you’d like to contribute, click here!

conch eggs

Conchs lay hundreds of thousands of tiny eggs in a sandy egg mass. The larvae emerge after 5 days and drift on currents for up to a month before settling to the bottom of the ocean.
