Dr. Tracy Livingston, Georgetown College, is teaching a Tropical Biology course that includes 12-days on-site in Belize embedded in a 5-week summer course.
During the study abroad portion, students will study examples of Earth’s most diverse ecosystems by exploring both tropical rainforests and a coral reef in Belize. The students will study at Blue Creek Field Station, where they will will live and work within a primary rainforest surrounded by a wealth of biodiversity ranging from large buttressed trees to howler monkeys. The group the travels to South Water Caye, part of the longest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere, where they will will study reef structure, mangrove forests and grass beds while swimming among brilliantly-colored reef fish and corals.
The group will also visit the Mayan ruins at Lubaantun and spend time at the Tropical Education Center at the Belize Zoo.
Dr. Timothy Griffith is the on-site director. Also hailing from Georgetown College, Dr. Griffith has taught the same course in Belize in previous years. He brings a wealth of expertise to support the students while they experience the wonders of Belize.
