Conservation challenges in Latin America

 A new graduate course for our program in Chile extends our successful class oriented to international students. Every Monday we have a class looking at Latin American history of conservation from pre-Colombian times to modern challenges during the XXI century.

Ecosystem current conditions and how different countries are tackling multiple needs for development while conserving biodiversity and cultural heritage are key topics that we discussed during this term.

Latin American Conservation

Latin American Conservation is the introductory course in our program about Socioecological systems in Southern Chile. The entire program is taught in English from September to December every year.

Our international course is offered to University of California students every September in our field station Kod Kod place and Campus Villarrica, Centre for Sustainability. An intensive one week class includes two field visits and a final student conference about key topics in Biodiversity Conservation in Latin America.
