BIOL 369/469 Conservation Biology is 13-day, field-based course offered this Spring 2016 semester at RU that will be largely carried out in an ancient rainforest and two savannah biomes of Tanzania, all three of which are World Heritage sites. This is an exceptional chance to learn about the diversity of the plants and animals, and the people that live in the 8th Wonder of the World! SUST alum Nicole Burns (BA ’13) took this class in Spring 2013 and wrote about her experiences here.

Current RU students may contact Professor Nobert Cordeiro to learn about the course content, travel itinerary, costs, fund-raising and more. Travel occurs a day after graduation in the spring of 2016.

Please note the class is now open to students who have taken Biology 112 (Environmental Biology) or Biology 202 (Ecology, Evolution, & Genetics). While there are at least two openings left, students should contact Prof. Cordeiro via email ( ASAP for information and to register.
