Graduate Research

Graduate students are always encouraged to apply to conduct their research at our partner facility, the T.R.E.E.S Hosting Center. Preference will be given to those students wishing to conduct hands-on research projects in the following areas: wildlife ecology and botany, natural resource conservation, GIS mapping, soils science, organic agriculture, landscape architecture, and sustainable community development. Ecorana is especially concerned about promoting research that is in keeping with locally relevant biological conservation and cultural issues. We will work with graduate students to ensure information sharing between relevant stakeholders to promote applicability of conservation-based research within Belize.

Program duration is at the discretion of the student and their supervisor, although preference will be given to students with field seasons of 6 weeks or less at each time. Program costs average about $20 US/day for lodging and use of facilities but this rate varies depending on the student’s needs. Please contact us with your CV, proposed project details, and living and working requirements and we will provide revised pricing and availability.
