Tanzania: Zanzibar-Coastal Ecology and Natural Resource Management

This program utilizes Zanzibar’s unique ecological context to explore specific environmental topics, including coral reef conservation, tropical forest management, and resource management. Through thematic coursework and direct field experience, you will examine issues arising from the tense juxtaposition of seasonal population growth and economic development with conservation of the local environment. You will learn to reframe notions of ecological sustainability in relation to local population needs, perspectives, and values. Please visit our website for more information. This year, SIT will award over $1.5 million in scholarships and grants.
