Guyana 2018

 Sponsored in part by the Shasta College Foundation
and The McConnell Foundation.

Trip expeditions made possible through Operation Wallacea. An international program focused on conservation research through academic partnerships​.

The amazing experience of partnering with Operation Wallacea to pair learning in class room with hands on in-the-field training began the summer of 2015 with the first expedition trip to Honduras. For the summer of 2018, the students will be traveling to the rainforests of Guyana.  
 
Guyana is a small South American country with strong cultural and historical ties to the Caribbean Community, resulting in a fascinating blend of influences and traditions. It is home to some of the oldest geological formations on the planet. This ecoregion is the most intact frontier rainforest left on Earth and is home to some of the most spectacular wild habitats in South America, including the breathtaking Kaieteur falls. More than 80% of Guyana is still covered by forests, and one of the best preserved biodiverse areas in the world.
 
This amazing opportunity has been organized through Shasta College and Operation Wallacea (OpWall), an organization that runs a series of biological and conservation management research programs in remote locations across the world.
