This course will be based on Ambergris Caye, a small island off the coast of Belize. Students will spend a significant amount of time studying the ecology and taxonomy of the many ecosystems this unique area provides. We will take daily field excursions to the barrier reef and mainland rainforest destinations. Students will explore relationships between adventure recreation and ecotourism in the responsible use of natural resources. Additionally, we will learn of the opportunities and challenges presented to Belizeans by the rapid growth of adventure-related tourism. Activities will include snorkeling, cave tubing, canopy tours, field observations, and assigned readings.
