Travel Opportunities

The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity offers three courses that allow students to learn more about global biodiversity in some of the most interesting and diverse areas of the world. For a complete list about travel opportunities at UW-Green Bay, visit the Office of International Education.

Australia (Summer 2013)

Dr. Bob Howe and Dr. Amy Wolf will be leading a group of students on a trip to learn more about Australia's "Top End". The course will focus on the continent's unique flora and fauna, geography, and on the impacts of introduced species. For more information contact Dr. Howe or Dr. Wolf.

Costa Rica (Winter Break)

Dr. Matt Dornbush and Kevin Fermanich lead this service learning based course. Students will learn about tropical habitats as well as have the opportunity to help improve Carera National Park and teach children at a local school.

Panama (Winter Break)

This course allows students to participate in research projects in association with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Students will visit marine, lowland rainforest, and cloudforest habitats.

Independent Research Opportunities

The center also supports research opportunities for exceptional students to conduct independent research abroad. In the past we have had students complete theses in Trinidad and Tobego and in Panama. Travel funds are available for students through the NAS Heirloom Grants and the Land Trust Grant.
