Neo-Tropical Ecology Field Course

These six-day immersive courses are designed for groups of five or more. They’re ideal for you and your friends, or even a university class, to discover if you’ve got what it takes to be the next Jane Goodall. There are no fixed dates for these courses - just tell us when you would like to come along and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

You’ll live in close proximity to your course mates, go to bed late and get up early to maximize your time in the field. It’ll be hot and humid, and there will be mosquitoes. But, you’ll be rewarded with life-altering interactions with some of the world’s most enigmatic animals in South America’s forest.

Costs: $710 per person for groups of five. Groups of six or more will get a ten per cent discount per person. Costs include bed and board.
