Student Research Trip to Belize
A group of 10 biology majors, accompanied by Dr. Jameson Chace, associate professor of biology and biomedical sciences, studied the natural wonders of Belize during a 10-day research trip in January 2014. The group spent much of their time at the Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society, an organization dedicated to conserving Belize‘s natural and cultural heritage. As part of the home-stay portion of their trip, the group spent two nights in a Mayan village. They also explored the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and Jaguar Preserve, studied the region’s mountains, streams and forests and even floated down rivers.
