Program Overview

Program Description:
EPI offers 9-day experiential education field programs that focus on science education, conservation, and intercultural exchange. This amazing opportunity allows students to assist with a sea turtle monitoring project, and be an active collaborator in international sea turtle conservation efforts. Participants collaborate with professional researchers conducting on-going research projects with conservation ramifications. In addition to collecting important data, students explore unique, and sometimes threatened, ecosystems in an effort to learn more about them and how best to protect them at home and abroad. Through this interactive course, students are taught that every individual can make a positive difference in the world.
