As we near the end of the semester, think about which animals/ecosystems you’d like to explore further. Which do you want to see in the wild?
Plan a vacation for 2018 to go see a specific animal or habitat anywhere in the world (try something outside of the US, definitely out of CA).
Write this in a word document, inserting pictures as necessary. Save as a doc or PDF, then upload your finished work.
Best time of year to see the specific animal
What behaviors you would expect to see (breeding, feeding, migrating, etc)
In what way would you be able to interact with them? (SCUBA license needed? Boat, swim, cage dive, helicopter?)
Minimum budget needed for a three day, two-night stay, including travel and lodging expenses
One example of research being conducted on the animal or ecosystem
