Northern Tanzania and southern Kenya, home of world famous national parks such as Amboseli, Tsavo, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Serengeti, and the Ngorongoro conservation area, offers a tightly packed hub of wildlife conservation. This extremely scenic area, which is the center of tourism in East Africa, has been the home of the Maasai people for centuries. The two regions share some bio-physical characteristics and cultural elements, but enough subtle and distinct differences in conservation and development policy, soil and vegetation composition, water resource availability, and culture provide an opportunity for comparing and contrasting wildlife management studies between these two regions. The summer programs are held in one of the two countries.
One semester of college-level ecology or biology, 18 years of age.
Students will be exposed to a rich array of issues in both countries related to wildlife management and conservation, presented by SFS faculty and guests who have field experience and knowledge of these areas. Visit the SFS program website for more information.
A note about housing: Students sleep in thatched-roof bandas with a main building, or chumba, which houses a dining room, kitchen, classroom, and library. Additional facilities include a duka (shop), bathrooms, and open-air showers.
Please visit the SFS program page, and speak to an OSU education abroad advisor regarding the program cost.
