In January 2010 a group of students from Lesley University and The Art Institute of Boston traveled from Massachusetts to the North East coast of South America in the class Field Experiences in Tropical Ecology. In this hands-on class, students learn about the ecological systems, history, and social pressures of Guyana’s capital city Georgetown and three inner-country villages: Rewa, Apoteri, and Yupukari. This science credit class also strives to support Guyana in eco-tourism, housing students in village-run eco-lodges, in a push to spread eco-tourism as a way to profit from the beautiful 80% pristine rainforst rather than exploiting it for lumber, oil, and gold.
This is my personal photography taken in Guyana. Please comment and rate my work, and visit the links to learn more about Guyana.
