St. Lawrence graduates have a thirst for knowledge, are innovative problem-solvers, and make their communities, companies, and the world better places. This periodic roundup features Laurentians at the focus of news stories shared by and within their communities.
The future of our planet is a topic of great concern globally and at St. Lawrence University. One way the University addresses this issue is through the conservation biology program, which is designed to teach students the tools and skills used to describe, understand and protect biological diversity. In addition to learning fundamentals of ecology, students will learn about the interdisciplinary nature of conservation problems and the need to engage with multiple stakeholders to solve them.
Courses in the major involve study in both field and laboratory settings, including in local forests, lakes and streams. Hands-on research experiences are hallmarks of the experience of conservation biology students. Many conservation biology students also study abroad in places like Kenya, Denmark, Australia and New Zealand.
