SIT Study Abroad Indonesia: Biodiversity & Conservation in Bali & Borneo (Summer)

Examine biodiversity, conservation, resource-use patterns, and the restoration of wildlife on the exotic islands of Bali and Borneo.

 

Overview

WHY STUDY CONSERVATION IN INDONESIA?

One of the world’s recognized “megadiverse” countries, Indonesia is known for its primeval rainforests and wealth of natural resources including some15,000 plant species. Take a journey through villages and volcanic landscapes, plantations, and lushly forested conservation areas, as well as the stunning coral reefs, beaches, mangroves, and seagrass beds of this ecologically rich pocket of the world. Starting in Bali, on the grounds of an ancient palace complex, explore grassroots conservation focused on habitat restoration, community sustainability, and endangered species management. Witness extreme threats to animal and plant life posed by rapid growth in tourism and the palm oil industry. Learn from conservationists dedicated to protecting national parks in Java and Borneo and observe the diverse community of primates and other large fauna. There will be opportunities to snorkel among the coral reefs and manta rays, hike in tropical forests, and visit conservation projects aimed at protecting the Bali myna, Bornean orangutan, and other endangered species.
