About the Program

“International Conservation Biology” seeks to familiarize students with Ecuador as well as offer students a comprehensive exposure to the ecology, natural history, political and social conservation climate, and cultural trends of north western South America and Amazonia; it is a study of conservation issues in biodiverse developing nations and is, therefore, relevant for broadening the student’s perspective. The study of Ecuador’s cultures in this context will also provide students with a means of taking a more realistic and more comprehensive view of other cultures, Western and non-Western.
