Welcome to Fall 2016 Tropical Ecology & Conservation Program


One of the first ecosystems explored in Costa Rica was the Paramo, an ecosystem found above 3000 meters in elevation (above tree-line).  Here is the whole group with Alan enjoying the view.



While learning about mangroves, the students got to experience this type of ecosystem really close.  Here Alex Bush (Southern Methodist University) is enjoying his time walking through Red Mangrove roots.



Snorkelling around Isla del Caño was a great experience, got to see many different species of fish and a big school of Jacks



Had a great time during nike hikes looking for creatures like frogs, snakes, insects, spiders, etc. Here is Emma Barnes (University of Maryland) with a Cat-eyed Snake Leptodeira nigrofasciata
