    DANTA: Association for Conservation of the Tropics Winter 2010/2011 and Summer 2011 Field Courses


    Danta: Association for Conservation of the Tropics is pleased to announce its winter and summer 2011 field courses in tropical biology. The courses are intended for undergraduates or early graduate level students who have a keen interest in tropical biology and conservation, but have little or no experience of working in a tropical environment. Participants may enroll on either a credit or non-credit basis.


    Courses will be held in Costa Rica’s spectacular Osa Peninsula. As one of the largest tracts of rain forest north of the Amazon, this area is renowned for high animal and plant diversity. It is one of only a few places in Costa Rica that has jaguar, puma, sea turtles and four species of monkey (mantled howler monkey, black-handed spider monkey, white-faced capuchin and squirrel monkey). It is also home to nearly 4,000 plant species, including trees more than 200 feet tall. All students participating in our programs will have opportunity to be involved in applied conservation and community service.


    Winter 2010/2011 Course


    Primate Behavior and Conservation (December 28, 2010

    January 17, 2011) Instructors: Kimberly Dingess, Anthropology, Indiana University, Bloomington; Dr. Jessica Westin, Anthropology, Penn State and Dr. Klaus Zuberbühler, Psychology, University of St. Andrews, Scotland.

  • SARS - AIDS - Ebola - Avian Influenza – Anthrax - Botulism - Plague - West Nile Virus –Mad Cow Disease - Smallpox

Over 60% of all infectious diseases of animals can also affect humans, and incidences of new, emerging zoonotic infectious diseases are on the rise. Veterinarian-scientists, by virtue of their broad experience in multiple species and extensive training in both molecular and whole animal contexts, are uniquely qualified to address the complex problems presented in modern biomedical research. 

     For over 40 years, the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine has provided an outstanding environment for the training of future veterinarian-scientists through its VMD/PhD Program. Find out more about how you can impact tomorrow ’s medicine for all species at

  • We’re excited to announce that the University of Michigan Program in Biomedical Sciences (PIBS) has developed a video overview of our program so that you can learn all about PIBS and Ann Arbor from the mouths of our students and faculty.  

    You can check out the full video or short clips on the main PIBS website:

    You can also find it on YouTube and Facebook!

    Please feel free to share this new resource with your students when discussing Michigan for their graduate studies.

  • The Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC) at Columbia
    University offers education programs serving undergraduate and graduate
    students as well as professionals. CERC's programs provide opportunities for
    critical skill building and problem-solving in conservation and

    Non-science majors take:
    Summer Ecosystem Experiences for Undergraduates (SEE-U)
    Undergraduate field study courses in Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and the
    Hudson River Valley. Introduces students to ecology and conservation biology
    through lecture and lab courses that allow undergraduates of all majors to
    study in the field and earn up to six science credits, which fulfill core
    science requirements at Columbia. Fellowship is available. Covered by
    Columbia's Tuition Benefits.

    Visit: for more information on SEE-U.


    Working professionals choose:
    CERC's Certificate Evening Program for Professionals
    Evening classes designed for the working professional provide an in-depth
    understanding of the science, economics, and today's critical issues of
    environmental sustainability. Columbia affiliates are eligible to receive a
    special tuition rate.
