South Queensland, Australia! ...

Known as the Sunshine State, Queensland is home to lush green rainforests, golden beaches, the remote bush, and the spectacular marine diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. We’ll begin our program in the beautiful city of Brisbane, then venture off to iconic Australian ecosystems. South Queensland has a wonderful temperate climate throughout the year with plenty of sunshine, and expected program daytime temperatures typically in the 70's.

Because of the continent's great age, extremely variable weather patterns, and long-term geographic isolation, much of Australia's biota is unique and diverse. About 85% of flowering plants, 84% of mammals, more than 45% of birds, and 89% of in-shore, temperate-zone fish are endemic. Australia has the greatest number of reptiles of any country with 755 species.

Or New Zealand!

Imagine visiting snow-capped mountains rising 12,000 feet out of the sea; cruising the largest fiords in the world; hiking massive glaciers carving their way to the ocean; experiencing close encounters with flora and fauna unknown elsewhere in the world; kayaking to deserted beaches through turquoise waters; and discovering the stunning scenery of the Lord of the Rings. New Zealand's South Island is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The program will begin with several days in Dunedin, followed by an approximately 2-week field study of the South Island. A typical itinerary includes Mount Cook, the wild West Coast, swimming with dolphins at Kaikoura (weather permitting), a guided kayak of Abel Tasman National Park, a guided hike on Fox Glacier, a sheep farm visit, and a boat cruise on Milford Sound. The last week of the program will be spent on the North Island and includes visits to parks, beaches, and a stay at a Maori Marae. Our experiential education focuses on learning through guided action. More information and apply.
