With Dr. Sue Morra
May 10–20, 2013
Check out our Field Study in Galapagos Flyer (PDF).
Participants will research the ecology of The Galapagos Islands, study the life style of Galapagos animals, and plan their travel before leaving on a nine day research trip. Students will further what they have learned in earlier classes byactually experiencing firsthand the differences in ecosystems. Both students in the environmental science and the marine science programs can benefit from more field work since field research is frequently completed by professionals in bothof these areas. Field experiences will introduce students to examples of the type of work they could be doing upon completion of their degree. By studying this ecosystem, the students will develop a better understanding of ecology andwill be better able to make informed decisions about how man controls economic development in harmony with nature.
