The adventurous type; one who learns by exploration and discovery

Intersemester Study Abroad: Panama, ’19/’20

The destination: Panama. The trip: conservation biology across diverse tropical ecosystems.

The outcome: These photos. And a lot of fun, we would imagine.

This year’s intersemester study abroad trip to Panama produced breathtaking imagery. Led once again by Dr. Carmen Greenwood of the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Environmental Science, highlights included:

    • The Panamanian reptiles of the rainforest
    • Horseback rides up Cerro Chucanti in the Darien
    • Boating in the mangroves at Coiba
    • Rare tree frogs at El Valle Amphibian Conservation Center
    • Hiking to the summit of Cerro Chucanti — “the Chucanti Death March”
    • the remains from a 60 year-old helicopter crash
    • The big-eyed and the bug-eyed

This isn’t Coby’s first trip to Panama; Dr. Greenwood leads one annually. While many who make the journey are studying Fisheries and Aquaculture, Environmental Management, or Wildlife Management, the trip attracts a variety of students — making it is one of the College’s most popular study abroad adventures.
