Presentation Title

Bats, Bugs, and Bellbirds (oh my!): Research and Internships in Monteverde, Costa Rica, Summer 2012

Location

Johnson 215

Abstract

Monteverde, Costa Rica is a place of immense beauty and biodiversity, but human encroachment into the area (e.g., settlement, tourism, use of natural resources, and farming) is causing irreparable damage to many of the things that make it especially unique. Thanks to the Groner Foundation (GEGF), last summer three Lake Forest College students participated in eight-week internships at the Monteverde Institute (MVI), a nongovernmental organization for the promotion of sustainable development. Abby Brownell, Ryan Drake, and Ashley Gora assisted MVI in addressing key issues through contribution on the Bellbird Corridor Project, ASADA water supply database, and community outreach events.
