In partnership with the American Universities International Programs Limited (AUIP) program, UW-La Crosse faculty, Dr. Laurie Harmon will be leading a winter intersession program to New Zealand and Australia. The program focuses on sustainability and ecotourism within the south pacific region and is structured as a traveling program requiring students to move from one city to the next every few days or so. Students will earn 3 credits for the course REC 375 - Ecotourism. Students not in a Recreation major/minor may elect to transfer the credit back as general elective credit, or work with another appropriate department for transfer equivalencies within that respective department.
This program examines South Africa's defining environmental issues. You'll visit one or more of the Eastern Cape's famous game reserves, and coastal areas such as Woody Cape Nature Reserve and Bird Island. Field trips to sites such as George and Knysa (located on the beautiful Garden Route) illustrate South Africa's efforts to reconcile development and conservation.
