Dominica

Operation Wallacea Expedition to Dominica July 2017 - third instalment

£775.00

Description

Third instalment of £775 due 31st March 2017

This expedition is run in one of the most unspoiled islands in the Caribbean. Forests cover much of the island and there are many deep unsurveyed gorges. Steep forested cliffs rise straight out of the sea and sheer slopes leading into deep canyons with huge waterfalls have made use of mechanical forest clearance methods impossible in Dominica and thereby protected the forests. 20% of the island is now protected as national parks or forest reserves and the island has the largest stands of primary forest of all the Caribbean islands.

The students spend their first week in one of three forest camps located in the centre, east and south of the island and will be on site with an international team of academics who are collecting data on biodiversity of key taxa (birds, bats, various aquatic and terrestrial invertebrate groups) and examining the impact of invasive species (e.g. a Puerto Rican anole that has invaded the island and spread rapidly). The second week will be staying in student accommodation in a renovated British fort in the north of the island. The students will be completing a PADI Open Water dive training course or a Caribbean reef ecology course which consists of two lectures and two in-water activities each day. In addition they will learn about the whale research taking place just off the coast, as well as possibly seeing Sperm Whales and other marine mammals.
