Wildlands Studies announces a new program to the Pacific Islands!

Attention nature-loving and venturesome students,

Wildlands Studies is embarking on a new program in the Pacific Islands! Join us to investigate the tropical seascapes of the remote Mariana Island archipelago through a comparative study of three islands: Guam, Saipan and Rota. This three island comparison will evaluate how climate change is affecting the Pacific Islands, examine invasive wildlife and explore conservation initiatives.

Our lead instructor, Benita Carmen Laird-Hopkins, has conducted research around the globe, from Thailand to Cuba to Alaska to Guam. Now is your chance to be apart of Benita’s team in Alaska (summer 2019), the Pacific Islands (winter 2020), or Cuba (spring 2020). Apply over winter break and confirm your chance to research in one of these remarkable places!https://wildlandsstudies.campbrainregistration.com/

Hoping for something sooner? There are few spots still available on our 2019 spring and summer programs! Browse all of our programs here: https://www.wildlandsstudies.com/

Best of luck on finals and we hope to see you in the new year,

Allison

Wildlands Studies 2019 spring programs announcement

Dear Students,

Now that Thanksgiving break is upon us, we hope it leaves you with some free time to envision how to make the most of your college experience. Plan now to take advantage of the final spaces available on our 2019 spring programs to Australia and South Africa. Each program earns 15 quarter credits and costs approximately the same as a quarter at a university.

Australia: Tropical Ecosystems, April 8 – May 22, 2019

  • Amazing wildlife: Sea turtles, kangaroos, crocodiles, koalas, cassowaries
  • Field research skills: Species identification, marine taxonomy, surveying techniques
  • Incredible environments: Great Barrier Reef, tropical rainforests, coastlines, grasslands

South Africa: Oceans and Wildlife, April 8 – May 22, 2019

  • Amazing wildlife: Lion, rhino, zebras, giraffes, elephants, humpback whales, dolphins
  • Field research skills: Camera traps, marine mammal surveys, species identification
  • Incredible environments: Marine ecosystems, coastlines, African plains, grasslands

Remember, not all classrooms have four walls. Spend the spring term sleeping in your tent while studying in South Africa or Australia and earning academic credit! Use the break to look over the details of each program and secure your spot by applying at: https://wildlandsstudies.campbrainregistration.com/

This Thanksgiving (and every day) Wildlands Studies is thankful for our wildlands and wildlife. Join us in the field to learn how you can help preserve them!

We invite students to check out all our programs at Wildlands Studies.

Best wishes,

On March 11, 2011, Fukushima, Japan was hit by Tōhoku’s 9.0 magnitude earthquake in addition to a massive tsunami with waves more than 10 meters high. As a result, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant led to three nuclear meltdowns, hydrogen-air chemical explosions, and the release of radioactive material sending waves of concern across the international nuclear industry. Three years after the accident, the providence of Fukushima has pledged to be sourced by 100% renewable sources by 2040.

Join The GREEN Program as we explore the origins of this historic disaster as well as Fukushima’s newest frontiers as they take on a renewable energy future.

Founded in 2009, The GREEN Program (TGP) is an award-winning, experiential education program for young leaders in sustainable development.
Created for students, by students, TGP has introduced a new model for education abroad driven by a desire to provide purposeful, hands-on industry exposure at a fraction of the time and cost.

Our program attracts students and young leaders who are curious about the world, seek opportunities to break out of their comfort zones, and stand out amongst their peers as global citizens. Our accredited, short-term model focuses on bringing transformative experiences to students around the world and unlocking doors to governmental, public, and private facility access, exclusive tours, and unique bucket-list experiences. We are working with universities around the world to redefine what a classroom should mean – from lecture halls to studying the effects of climate change on the top of our world’s glaciers.

Join the adventure!
