Join Professor Susan Willson at this upcoming Information Session to learn more about her exciting Summer 2022 course:
Tropical Ecology and Conservation in Ecuador’s Highlands and the Galapagos
Dates: June 1, 2022 – June 21, 2022
Course description: Students will learn through immersion in this three-week course on ecology, biodiversity, and conservation in Ecuador. Students will visit three distinct tropical ecosystems: the high-elevation Andean grasslands, where volcanoes are visible on all sides rising to over 18,000 ft., the humid montane cloud forest, where trees are covered with moss, orchids, and a dizzying array of bird species, and the renowned Galapagos Islands. Students will learn first-hand from Ecuadorian biologists, trained environmentally-themed tour guides, and community members, as well as through course readings, discussions, and lectures. The course structure provides ample opportunity to learn about Ecuador’s rich cultural heritage, the indigenous highland Quechua culture, and how Ecuador is being affected by climate change.
