A cozy winter greeting from Wildlands Studies!
We love winter but we can’t help and think about new spring leaves and warm tropical places. We invite applications from students for our upcoming 2017 spring and summer programs.
In Spring 2017, we offer programs in South Africa, Costa Rica/Panama and Nepal. Our South Africa Project combines the primary research of our faculty on bottlenose dolphins with time spent inland with the iconic African animals, specifically elephant and rhinos. On our Costa Rica/Panama Project, our first three weeks in Costa Rica visit three important biological research stations focused on the green sea turtle, large carnivores and the diminishing rainforest. We then move overland to Panama to study indigenous cultures, environmental justice and comparative rainforests. In Nepal, after an initial stay in the predominant wildlife area of Chitwan, we spend almost five weeks trekking among the highest mountains in the world studying ecology and environmental management.
This summer, students can join us in Belize, Australia, Banff (Canada), Yellowstone, the California Channel Islands and Big Sur.
The opportunity to visit such amazing and unique environments, and to learn research methods while working alongside environmental professionals, is rarely offered to undergraduates. Wildlands Studies programs also make great resume builders and preparatory courses for graduate school.
We invite students to review our website: http://www.wildlandsstudies.com. Each program has a full project description, syllabus and photos on the field project webpage.
