Primate field school in Costa Rica: Maderas Rainforest Conservancy

Are you looking for a primate field school this summer?

I am instructing two sessions of a 4-week Primate Behavior and Ecology field school through Maderas Rainforest Conservancy in the rainforest at La Suerte, Costa Rica. Both of these sessions still have space available for students:

Session 2: June 21 (fly in) to July 19 (fly out)
Session 3: July 19 (fly in) to August 14 (fly out)

La Suerte is home to mantled howler monkeys, white-faced capuchin monkeys, and spider monkeys. Students will spend mornings observing and collecting data on monkeys, and afternoons attending daily lectures, participating in group discussions, and working on assignments. The course will culminate with independent projects on primate behaviour. You will learn a great deal about primates in a short time. This course is excellent preparation for graduate work in primatology, and a great way to gain field experience with wild primates.

Cost: $2095 USD for course tuition, meals, and lodging at La Suerte. Airfare is an additional cost.
