What You'll Learn
While you explore your island home, you'll also dive into research and data collection - the shallow waters surrounding the island are full of echinoderms like sea stars and urchins that you'll record and monitor through snorkel surveys. You'll also spend some time swimming with sea lion pups and learning about desert ecology.
Connect With Fellow Students in Baja
EPI has worked with dozens of schools in La Paz and throughout the Baja Peninsula. During your course, you'll have an opportunity to meet some of these students to exchange your research findings, learn about each others' lives, and understand what conservation means in local Mexican communities. Be prepared to make new friends and gain a better understanding of how diverse and beautiful our world is, through the eyes of your peers in Baja.
