Thailand: Exploring Culture & Conservation - Field School and Study Abroad Opportunity
Are you looking for an opportunity to gain some experience with primatological field methods while experiencing another culture? Every two years, I bring a group of students to my field site at Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary for a short field methods course. Students learn how to conduct behavioral observations with habituated white-handed gibbons, use handheld GPS units to track gibbon movement, get a taste of phenological monitoring, and learn about the research and conservation work on other wildlife at the site (including tigers, small mammals, and birds). Once we leave the field site, we visit some fantastic facilities in other parts of Thailand and learn about wildlife rehabilitation, release/reintroduction, and human-primate interactions in anthropogenic landscapes. If you are interested in learning more about this program, please visit the program brochure site, watch this short recruitment video, or email me directly.

**** In concordance with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Title IX Statement, my goal is to create an open and welcoming learning environment free from harassment and discrimination because of sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, national origin, creed, service in the uniformed services (as defined in state and federal law), veteran status, age, political ideas, marital or family status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, or genetic information. Students participating in this study abroad program will be asked to read and sign a code of conduct outlining this policy and ways to respond to issues that may arise. I also maintain that participants who make a good-faith claim of harassment will not be dismissed from the program or otherwise retaliated against for their claim.
