Program Overview

Program Description:

Ceiba offers a variety of summer field ecology courses, all accredited through the University of Wisconsin, Madison. These courses offer unparalled access to pristine tropical sites. Students will lend a hand in active conservation projects while learning field-research techniques.

Belize is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world. Our Marine Biology of Coral Reefs course will first teach the fundamentals of oceanography and marine conservation. Students will then spend time snorkeling among coral reefs, mangroves, and sea grass ecosystems while learning marine research techniques. 

GIS is an increasingly important tool for those interested in conservation and environmental sciences. Our summer Conservation GIS in the Tropics course will help you learn and master basic and advanced GIS techniques. Spend time on the coast of Ecuador learning to collect data with a GPS unit and then analyze that data using GIS software to contribute to real world conservation projects.

Setting Description:
Our courses take place in world--renowned research facilities including the South Water Caye in Belize, a research station nestled among the mangroves with easy access to the ocean. In Ecuador, you will find yourself at the Lalo Loor Dry Forest Reserve, one of the most in-tact remnants of a once widespread ecosystem. Ceiba's research station is located within the forest, allowing ample opportunities for wildlife viewing.
