This spring, students will spend six-weeks unraveling the mysteries of the elusive and wonderfully fascinating neotropical apex predators (northern jaguars and ocelots) that once roamed throughout this rugged region in great numbers as our program traverses the Madrean Sky Islands! Our newest USA based program offers an exciting chance for students to gain hands-on experience in endangered wildlife research and active conservation initiatives while exploring the diverse ecosystems of the southwest.
