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

"...Duke came into the Wildtracks Manatee Rehabilitation Centre almost six weeks ago - a near weaning, sub-adult,emaciated manatee weighing only half of what he should. This manatee has a taste for the Wildtracks special of banana and water hyacinth leafsoy-based milk shakes, blended to perfection, with the added zing of taurine,vitamins and probiotics!  Found on his own in a canal near DukeMarine he was rescued by Jamal, Nicole, Gordon and the rest of the fantastic rescue crew, and transported to Wildtracks, but has been hard to stabilize...."
