Overall Experience
Definitely marine mammal related knowledge, skills in camping and for kayaking. How to make foreign friends. How to live in a totally unfamiliar culture. I think it was worthwhile. - Lesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Broadreach: British Columbia - Marine Mammal Ecology
This experience abroad widened my world views and how we interact with the natural world and things we would do to help minimize our affects on the environment. This experience was so worthwhile. - University of Tampa View Entire Review
