BIO 3316 - 6 Credit Hours
May 9 to May 24
Permission from instructor or BIO 1500 -This course will combine lectures about general ecology with field surveys that examine population and community ecology with an emphasis on conservation biology. Students will experience the various ecosystems of the Gambia, West Africa (wetlands, mangroves, savannah, gallery forest, coastal scrubland) as we travel to various protected areas and national parks. Students will participate in research in order to create an estimate of population size for several primate species that are currently threatened by habitat loss and bushmeat hunting. Students will interact with local wildlife officials and owners of community-based ecotourist camps to learn about challenges to conservation efforts. We will also visit with local school children to discuss current threats to local wildlife and possible ways to better manage and protect natural populations.

Dr. Malcom Manners
Students will explore the Cape Town area, including the Kirstenbosch National Botanic Garden (one of the world’s best), a day trip down the Cape Peninsula to Cape Point, where they’ll see penguins, baboons, and perhaps whales. A trip out to Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for nearly 25 years during the sad years of national apartheid), and a vineyard and winery, to see how South African wines are made. Then up to Kruger National Park for a safari, where they're likely to see elephant, white rhinoceros, hyena, giraffe, Cape buffalo, many species of antelope, and crocodile. We may also be lucky and see lion, cheetah and leopard and wild dogs. Then to Johannesburg and the flight home.
