The Maya Yucatan: Mexico

Play Slideshow

From lush forests to barrier reefs, and ancient Maya civilizations to modern day Maya communities, the Yucatan is a celebration of ecological and cultural diversity. Join us in the Yucatan: home to the second biggest barrier reef in the world and one of the largest and most magnificent protected areas in Mexico. Jaguars, crocodiles, spider monkeys, tapirs, leatherback turtles, hundreds of species of birds, hundreds of species of fish, and diverse human communities all call this region home. The Maya Yucatan: Mexico workshop highlights current issues facing this incredible region and provides terrific opportunities for students to engage in meaningful studies of the natural and cultural landscapes that makes this area so unique.
