Students learn about the complexities of sustainable wildlife conservation in the Tarangire-Manyara ecosystem of northern Tanzania.

In this course, students develop field skills to explore the ecology, social organization, and behavior of common large African mammals.
  • Observe wildlife in parks and protected areas which may include Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Serengeti National Park
  • Learn methods of conserving wildlife both inside and outside protected areas amid a rapidly changing socioeconomic and political environment
