About EHS Science Travel-Based Learning:
Each summer, a group of students travel abroad to perform conservation research in an underdeveloped country.
Next summer in 2020, 32 Edina High School juniors will take part in a conservation research expedition to the Indonesian island of Borneo. At the beginning of the expedition, students will visit an orangutan sanctuary and local village. From there, students will camp in the rainforest and on the ocean while performing research. During the expedition, students will be helping scientists inventory species both in the rainforest and in the ocean, quantify the carrying capacity for orangutans in the rainforest and study coral reefs. The goal is to help identify the fauna of Borneo forests and to help establish standardized monitoring protocol that can identify any changes in over time. The goal is to help the government develop ecotourism to help the local economy, quantify carbon quantity in the forests to receive carbon credits and prevent forest destruction.
