Jana was passionate about her work. Her parents and her brother would like to honor her memory with a Trust Fund that will allow others to continue her work. This means the financial support of the study and protection of endangered species and more specifically the elephants. The Trust Fund will support, on a small scale, up to a maximum of 1500 euro per application, scientists financially in carrying out their research.
