Program Overview:
This upper-division course will provide opportunities to hike in spectacular areas of physical diversity including volcanic, coastal and alpine regions of New Zealand's South Island. Educational visits to the only Antarctic Center in the world and to the Canterbury Museum where Maori culture, history and the European colonization of New Zealand are presented. We also visit a Maori cultural center where students see native animals including rare Kiwis, an authentic Maori village, Maori songs and dances performed by locals and experience a Maori hangi meal. Students interact with local educators in multiple settings to hear their perspectives on important issues such as diversity, endangered species projects, and their environmental emphasis on natural resources and sustainability.
