Primate Behaviour and Conservation Field Course in Costa Rica

The State University of New York and East Stroudsburg University are running Primate Behaviour and Conservation Field Courses in their research centre in North-East Costa Rica. The course is aimed at undergraduates or early level graduates who have little or no experience in the field, and 3 separate courses are being run over Winter and Summer.

The field station is set over 1000 hectares of lush rainforest, and the wildlife you will see and study includes white-faced capuchins, mantled howling monkeys, black-handed spider monkeys, tapir, jaguar, collared peccary, keel-billed toucans, great green macaws, brown caimans just to name a few. During your time there you will learn field techniques that can be used in tropical research in areas of ecology, behaviour and conservation.
