Explore natural ecology
in the breathtaking island of Bermuda this summer!
unique geography—it’s an interconnected 22-square-mile chain of
islands surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean—makes a perfect location
for exploring natural ecology and one of the world’s most
popular tourist destinations. In addition, Bermuda, as a
self-governing territory of the United Kingdom, is home to major
insurance and financial institutions.
Offered in partnership with the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo
(BAMZ) , this course brings students to historic and ecologically
significant sites in Bermuda and nearby islands. Funded through the
generous support of Joseph Smetana, a longtime supporter of St.
John’s and a member of its Board of Governors, the program includes
lodging, meals, transportation to and from field trips, boat use,
and other equipment. Mr. Smetana also sits on the board of the Atlantic
Conservation Partnership (ACP) , which is the support charity
that facilitates the summer program at the BAMZ host site.
