Service Project, Costa Rica
Date: June 2020
Aiglon Service Projects offer our students incredible opportunities worldwide to engage in local community projects, addressing real world issues and inspiring them to become agents of positive change. Not only do our students absorb the reality of life in an unfamiliar environment, but they also learn more about themselves on a daily basis.
This service project aims to promote the conservation of biodiversity and sustainability and Costa Rica, with its amazing biodiversity, stunning scenery, lush rainforests and volcanoes, makes it the ideal location to experience personal development and learning for the adventurous student.
In Costa Rica's capital, San José, we will enjoy a city tour to get our bearings. Once in the national park our group will be helping with collecting vital data on birds, bats, monkeys and butterflies. We will also visit Monte Verde Cloud Forest Reserve to learn more about the unique flora and fauna in this unique and vulnerable part of the world by exploring the forest from the vantage point of suspended canopy walkways down to the low forest trails. We also hope to see sloths in the Manuel Antonio National Park.
The trip is led by Ms. Maria Fons and is open to students from Year 10 to Year 13. The trip will last for two weeks and will leave around 18th June.
