Description

Our Critical Issues programs are themed learning and service programs designed to immerse students in global challenges as seen in communities around the world. In this program, we take a deeper look into Fiji’s marine ecosystem and the impact that climate change has had on this fragile habitat. With Cyclone Winston having caused massive destruction in 2016, this is an issue that local Fijians and the international community is watching with a close eye. Analyze the effects of extreme weather, rising waters, warmer water temperatures, impacted animal populations, and deforestation through hands-on environmental monitoring projects in the field and conversations with expert community partners. Learn about the various strategies in place to protect, conserve, and restore Fiji’s marine environment and coastal ecosystems. Identify tropical fish and coral species, swim with manta rays and observe sharks. Cap off your experience with a return to the mainland where you’ll hike along the Sigatoka Sand Dunes, kayak down the coast, and explore hidden waterfalls.
