Science Education 

for a Brighter Future

At Ecology Project International (EPI), we engage local communities in youth development, leadership, and habitat conservation, and we run world-class, science-focused travel programs for students and teachers. Together, we're building a brighter, more sustainable future.

Student-based group travel programs featuring hands-on research in Costa Rica, Belize, Galapagos Islands, Mexico, and Yellowstone.

What Makes 

EPI Unique?

Partnerships with scientists - Biologists with Yellowstone National Park. Principal Investigators in the Galapagos. Our partnerships set us apart.

Real conservation impacts - Restoring habitat. Protecting wildlife. We all learn best when we know how much it matters.

Nonprofit initiatives - We're committed to building a brighter future for the planet. Your tuition dollars help fund education and conservation programs for communities in need. 

Ecology Project International is a nonprofit. 

Our mission is to inspire youth with nature and empower them with science, fostering tomorrow's leaders. We envision a diverse movement building communities that cherish and restore the ecosystems that sustain them.

"EPI helped me realize the direct impact of science. When working with scientists on my trips, we would always find ways to give back to the communities and made sure that they were always involved."
