Study tropical conservation while exploring the many coral reefs in Belize.

Study Belize’s diverse rainforests, coral reefs, and visit Mayan ruins. Belize is unique in that it still contains relatively intact tropical forest as well as the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. However, while Belize has emerged as an international leader regarding conservation efforts, threats from climate change, poverty, and development still exist. The course is designed for students who are interested in marine sciences, conservation issues, biogeography, and outdoor adventures! We will examine the challenges of conservation in the tropics through experiential field learning.

6 hours credit in one of the following fields: New College, Geography, Environmental Science, Blount (possibly) and Honors by contract.
