Students will also have the opportunity to learn about local cultures and, through lectures, discussions and site visits, learn how the work that wildlife sanctuaries, refuges, and bioparks in these developing nations is  helping to conserve their natural resources. Students will be graded on preparation, team participation, performance and a short presentation during or following the course. The course is currently being taught in Central America (Belize or Honduras).
