The UW Banking Animal Biodiversity in Costa Rica program during Spring Break 2020 has a deadline of November 1st to be considered for participation! This program offers students a unique opportunity to apply developmental genetics concepts in projects focusing on the preservation of endangered species at risk of extinction. Lectures and research activities will focus on current threats affecting the local ecosystem and biodiversity in three sites throughout Costa Rica, including lowland tropical forest, a cloud forest, and a wetland/dry tropical forest.
The Summer 2020 UW Ghanaian Health & Food Systems: Human, Agricultural & Environment Health program’s deadline is still accepting applications. As part of this program, students will work with local youth, health care providers, and agriculturists in the diverse southern regions of Ghana to think critically about how politics, inequity, poverty, education, and economics influence food systems as well as environmental and human health.
