“Bon bini!” is how locals say “welcome” on the Caribbean island of Bonaire, home to one of the Earth’s most diverse and pristine marine habitats. With CIEE, you’ll take part in scientific dives to the area’s living coral reef, and learn from expert instructors, your own independent research, and local conservation organizations. Plus, you’ll become a part of conservation communities, publish your results in a scientific journal, and play a direct hand in saving this fragile ecosystem.
