Rainforest Ecology Field Experience in Costa Rica

During May 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, the Department of Biology has taken AUM students to Costa Rica for a rainforest ecology study abroad. 

Students viewed rainforest flora and fauna, visited research stations to see rain forest ecologists at work, viewed the tropical canopy, and experienced the culture of Costa Rica.Recently students returned from a Galapagos study abroad where they participated in a research study on giant tortoises. The Department hopes to make similar study abroad experiences available each year.
