Volunteer partnership with WWF for 3 months for 30 students in 2013 summer Madagascar

Dear WWF,
My Name is Julia Lyakhovich I ‘m in my first year at the McGill University undergraduate program of B.Sc B. Ed concurrent in Quebec Canada. I am pursuing a double major; one in chemistry one in education as well as biology minor.
I am writing to you to propose an innovative idea and to partner with you for perhaps a potential project.
In Cegep, I planned two humanitarian trips for John Abbott students one to Peru and one to Nepal. For Peru, I put together a group of 33 individuals, interviewed them, researched various organizations, dealt with issues such as liability and insurance, made presentations to parents and organized fundraisers. I also took a group to Nepal last summer for 2 months.
I am at the start of planning another humanitarian (with a bit of touring) to Africa, and my interest for this trip (Scheduled for summer 2013) is to have 20-45 volunteers in a conservation based project.
Volunteers from my Peru trip all expressed interested in going. Almost all the volunteers would have completed their undergrad by then (I will have students from environment, business and medicine that I already know of who are interested). I noticed you offer opportunities for youth as part of the Panda Explore project specifically in Madagascar, which is how I found this opportunity but seeing as how my application is not alone as I am interested in brining a large group with me I thought it would be best to write to you and ask if this was possible.
I have no problem organizing everything myself for all the hopefully 30 or more volunteers. I will take care of visas, airfare lodging,
Furthermore I just got accepted to be a David Suzuki ambassador, as an ambassador my role is to raise awareness about the environment and the project. I can engage other ambassadors and the support of the foundation for this trip perhaps. We could have the volunteer opportunity for McGill and other universites students as an ongoing project every year.

Please let me know what you think,
Sincerely
Julia
