Join a small crew of teens, led by experts from the Belize Oceanic Society, and study the behavior and physiology of bottlenose dolphins in the wild.
The wild bottlenose dolphins of Belize are anxious to meet their newest marine biologist: you. Search for these playful and intelligent creatures in Belize’s stunning offshore cayes and other dolphin hot spots. They’re out there. And so is the exhilarating rush that often accompanies the experience of observing dolphins in their natural habitats. This trek is hands-on, expert-led field research that will assist the Belizean Oceanic Society in their ongoing quest to protect these big-brained creatures and create a marine sanctuary.
“The atmosphere, fun.sun.upbeat.academic… it was the perfect balance! This program taught me more than I could imagine.” — Dave Horwich Woodridge, CT
