Conservation Biology & Practice in Brazil's Atlantic Forest Field Course

Recommended Posts

Conservation Biology & Practice in Brazil's Atlantic Forest Field Course - May 2015 University of Colorado-Boulder Study Abroad Programs is offering a conservation biology field course in Brazil, 11-28 May 2015. The course is held in the Atlantic Forest of eastern Brazil, a highly threatened center of faunal and floral biodiversity. Because much of the forest is in human-dominated landscapes, successful conservation practice can only occur jointly with efforts to alleviate socioeconomic issues. In two and a half weeks, this 3-semester credit course offers students hands-on experience through on-going conservation programs that couple biological understanding with sociological realities. We will be based out of the educational facilities of one of Brazil's largest environmental non-governmental organizations. On a four-day fieldtrip to the coast, participants will visit and learn about conservation in practice in the 1000-km long Serra do Mar Biodiversity Corridor. The course is designed for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students in disciplines pertinent to conservation. The application deadline is 2 March 15.
