Save the seals, vote for Dash!

Posted By on Wed, Mar 16, 2011 at 12:58 PM


Recent Colorado College grad Dash Masland is in hot contention for a second National Geographic Young Explorers Grant. Dash graduated CC, got a masters in marine science, and is now applying to do monk seal DNA research in Hawaii. (She's asking for money to pick up and study seal scat. Yum.)

As part of Expedition Week, Nat Geo is giving $10,000 to the grant winner, and $2,500 to second place. But, guess what? You get to decide who gets the dough. Go online to watch videos of Dash and her opponent, Trevor Frost, then vote for your favorite.


Click on "Expedition Granted." You can vote once a day until April 9. Every time you vote, you'll also be entered for a Galapagos cruise for you and three friends. Sweeter than scat!
