Ornithology in the Tropics: Birds of Belize

Recommended Posts

The Institute for Sustainable International Studies, ISIS Belize, offers a variety of conservation and environmental field courses in Belize, Central America.   We are particularly excited to offer a new introductory course in tropical ornithology.  The course examines the biology, ecology, diversity, behaviour and basic field techniques as well as field identification of birds found in Belize.  Students will spend time at the Belize Zoo, at rescue and rehabilitation centres and explore birds in several different ecosystems (marine, savannah, tropical broadleaf forest and mountains).

The courses are held in the field, forests, sea and waterways of this incredible developing country.  Students will experience and understand first-hand the wonders and challenges of different environments and their inhabitants.  All courses are intensive, delivering 3 credit hours over two weeks.  Students can pair another course for a full four weeks studying abroad. 
 
The courses also offer students a chance to explore the rich cultural, social and environmental resources in the tropical setting of English-speaking Belize.   The ISIS field courses below are linked to our website, for schedules and syllabi:

A two week course is $2,675 and the two course session is $4,225*, during June and July, 2014. These courses are also offered during a shorter winter session over the winter break, December 26, 2014– January 7, 2015.  Students tell us these courses are “worth every penny!”  Transcripts are issued from Sacred Heart College in San Ignacio, Belize or for those students needing transcripts from a US university, click here for details.
