Travel Course to Costa Rica

Study Dolphin Behavior with Marine Mammal Psychologist Paul Forestell
In January 2014, a group of 15 students will travel to the tiny village of Manzanillo on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica to study social interactions between two species of dolphins – the ubiquitous bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and the little known tucuxi dolphin (Sotalia fluviatilis), found only along the Caribbean coast of central and south America. The group will be led by LIU Dean and Professor of Psychology Dr. Paul Forestell, an expert on marine mammals, and co-author of three books, including "Humpbacks of Hawai'i: The Long Journey Back; and Laura Thompson, M.S. an instructor in biology, who has worked on this project for the past five years. We will continue an ongoing study of the factors related to the unusual observation of inter-species mating that occurs between the two species of dolphins.

The course location is in the beautiful Gandoca Wildlife Reserve, a remote and pristine rainforest national park, filled with fascinating wildlife (including monkeys, sloths, tropical birds, endangered reptiles) and spectacular tropical plants.

The trip runs from Jan. 3 to Jan. 19, 2014.

Course costs are $2,350 (for in-country transportation, all food and lodging, research boat charter, local guides, recreational activities, equipment and supplies, tips and gratuities). Airfare is $575, which must be paid in full by November 30, 2013.
