Mariah Wilson's curator insight, January 21, 12:07 PM

This would be an amazing opportunity to be able to go to Belize to study marine behavior! The price is actually fairly resonable as well. It is about $2995 US dollars. The trip includes housing, meals, ground & water transfer fees, research & materials fees. That money does not include airfare, books, tips, or credit hours. The work and hours put in are comparable to a 3 credit hour university course.

En Belize, te pasas mucho tiempo en el agua. Estudiara los delfines y los manatis. Ocho horas estando en el oceano. Comida, un casa y los materiales proporcionando. Es muy divertida
