Program Description:
Bahamas: Tropical Restoration Experience

Program Overview:

This two-credit course will cover the ecological and fundamental principles of tropical restoration.

Much of the Bahaman forests on Andros Island were historically mismanaged (clear-cut in some areas while overgrown in others), which has resulted in across-the-board degradation on the island. While on-island, we will be helping the Bahaman Forestry Unit with their tropical restoration initiatives in forests that include but are not limited to Bahaman pine forests, mangrove, and scrub forests. We will also visit a coral reef undergoing restoration. Students will learn about the ecological, cultural, economic, and personal values of restoration, learn about the restoration process, and work through strategies for a successful restoration. We will be hosted by the International Field Studies program while staying at the Forfar Field station.

Dr. Kevyn Juneau (Kevyn.Juneau@uwrf.edu) is the program leader.
