CIEE Summer Tropical Marine Ecology & Conservation Program in Kralendijk, Bonaire

“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. On our Summer Tropical Marine Ecology and Conservation program, you might choose to take part in specialized dive training and field research methods that result in certification with the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS). Or you could spend the summer exploring theoretical concepts in coral reef ecology and conservation through interactive lectures and field trips to coral reef ecosystems. Or maybe do both! Study abroad in Kralendijk and you’ll: - Develop and use scuba, photography, and videography skills to document and understand the ecology of coral reefs and associated ecosystems - Focus on theoretical concepts in coral reef ecology and conservation through interactive lectures and field trips - Learn to identify reef fish, corals, and other organisms and their behavioral interactions - An overnight trip is planned for the neighboring island of Curacao to see important cultural sites on the island
