Coral Reef Ecology Trip: May 2017


In May 2017, Professor David Cox and Dr. Michael Windelspecht will be leading a group of students to explore the ecology of one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet – the coral reefs. This is going to be an exciting trip, since not only will participants be able to learn about the ecology and culture of coastal Belize, but they will also be participating in the collection of scientific data to help researchers understand the impact of lionfish on the local coral reefs.  Activities on this trip will include:

Dives and snorkel experiences on multiple reefs

Visits to frigate bird rookeries

Tours of bioluminescent coves

and more!


Our base for these activities is the Almond Beach Resort and Spa, on the shores of the Caribbean. The accommodations and the experience will be amazing!

Individuals who are interested in these trips may elect to receive college science credit through Lincoln Land Community College or participate in a non-credit option, which includes accommodations, guide services, transfers, entrance fees, and most meals.
