Field Course in Primate Conservation
T.R.E.E. Field Studies
This course will focus on the issues facing the conservation of primates in disturbed and threatened habitats, including an examination of the complex problems arising between primate habitats and neighboring human settlements, as well as deforestation and hunting. Students will observe numerous primate species including white faced capuchins, howler monkeys and spider monkeys. Throughout the course, students will learn techniques to observe wild primates and collect ecological and behavioral data, as well as basic conservation biology theory.
As community interaction and involvement is key to primate conservation, we believe it is important to attempt a basic understanding of local languages. As such, Spanish language classes will be held throughout the field course and student participation is required.
