Amazon Field School

Previous Course

The Amazon Field School introduced students to the social and ecological complexities of natural resource management, biodiversity conservation and development in one of the most biodiverse areas on the world—Tambopata National Reserve—and adjacent areas in the Department of Madre de Dios, Peru. It used a variety of methods from the biological and social sciences to investigate causes, consequences, and solutions pertaining to natural resource management conflicts through the lenses of ecology, culture, and governance.
