Wildlife, Ecology, & Conservation Study Abroad in Africa:

The Fisheries & Wildlife Sciences program at North Carolina State University offers a three week study abroad program to Namibia (south western Africa) from May 16 to June 04, 2010.

Namibia is one of Africa’s most stable and safe countries to travel to with a good infrastructure and a well developed tourism industry. This is a unique opportunity for students to explore and experience Africa while studying and gaining valuable knowledge about African wildlife-, savanna- and desert ecology, park management, conservation, ecotourism and ecological sampling techniques.

Students will visit various ecosystems, conduct field work, participate in discussions and field lectures, track desert elephants, enjoy game drives and bushwalks.

The highlights of this trip are the Namib Desert, Damaraland, Etosha National Park and the Cheetah Conservation Fund. The program will be directed by Dr Dörgeloh, a wildlife ecologist with extensive knowledge and many years experience in southern Africa.

Students from other colleges and universities, as well as out-of-state are encouraged to apply.
