STUDENTS ARE IMMERSED IN LEARNING
Students are immersed in nature while learning about the ecology of the reserve’s diverse habitats including secondary and primary rainforest, mangrove forests, river estuaries and coral reefs. All learning at the O2 reserve’s “outdoor classroom” is filled with laughter, discovery and surprises.
Stays at the reserve typically last 6-10 days. Each day at the O2 reserve has planned field activities. Our talented and enthusiastic biologist/naturalist guides are always on the lookout for opportunities to engage students in learning–stopping frequently to identify the flora and fauna along the trails or teach them about the various relationships among species. During free time, students can relax in the community room, on the verandahs of the main house, or in hammocks at the waterfront.
Available activities include
- camera trap projects
- community service at a local school
- jewelry making with rainforest seeds
- O2 plant nursery
- learning about “jungle foods”
- playing soccer with locals
- night walks
