About

Throughout the course we will study the island’s unique and diverse ecological communities, examine insular ecology concepts such as island biogeography and endemism, and evaluate the history and success of current restoration programs. Team members will gain firsthand field experience by taking part in ongoing research projects such as island fox and island spotted skunk population monitoring, bald eagle reintroduction, and Argentine ant eradication.

Researchers will discuss their current goals and methodologies, and students will have the opportunity to directly apply what they learn by assisting researchers in the field. Together we will discuss the ecological impacts of these management decisions and discover how these decisions have positively impacted the native species on Santa Cruz Island. Come join us this summer as we explore the unique and inspiring wildlands of the California Channel Islands.
