Join us for the learning adventure of a lifetime, as we explore the remote rainforest and savannah of Guyana, South America, a country that is still over 75% forested, and with fewer than one person per square mile in the Rupununi region where we study. In this field course we will explore tropical biodiversity and human development at the edge of the world, in some of the planetís most pristine forests. We will be staying at Amerindian-owned and operated lodges deep in the Amazon. Together, through direct exploration, interaction, and reflection we will explore the role of humans in their environment and the future of global biodiversity, while immersing ourselves in this most special place.
Costs: approximately $2,750 (includes international airfare, room and board, and in-country transportation). Registration for the class is optional but registered students will get priority.
