Work with Broadreach College to survey the natural history, biology, behavior, and ecological and social importance of these formidable creatures that now, after millions of years, are in danger of extinction. Observe and study sharks up close in a controlled underwater environment at the Shark Reef Marine Reserve (SRMR). Witness shark habitats and work toward protecting them. There’s even time for a cultural visit in a Fijian village, where stories of an ancient protective Shark God are shared. Return from this trip having performed vital community service and engaged in cultural exchange.No Guilford faculty presence.
