Microryza and an Opportunity to Help

Dear Hyena Fans,

The hyena project is getting involved in crowd sourcing ourfunding once more, and we’d like to ask for your help! We’ve created a research page with the help of Microryza. By visiting our research page, you not only get to see some hyena clips, you can also help us out!

Money has been tight the last few months, and I’m hoping to get some funds to support my PhD research, and the current research taking place in our lab. I’ve blogged about my research before (e.g. A Sentinel for African Ecosystems and Text Messaging with Hyenas), so feel free to check out those posts for more information.

To help out, please consider donating to our project page at Microryza. If we can’t get up to our goal ($2,500US) in the time frame (2 months remaining), unfortunately we don’t get any of the funds pledged in support. This small amount of money will go a long way in our research, so please consider helping us out!

Thanks a lot! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to post comments to the blog or email me at

Hope you’re having a great start to the New Year.

The links to the funding page give a 404 error, that is, there's no page at with that URL. From looking at, there is a spotted hyena project with the URL

Thanks a lot for letting me know! I've changed the links now to make sure they work.
