Conserving Biodiversity

The Institute for Field Research is a study abroad program for students in the sciences. By partnering with the Borneo Nature Foundation and the Muhammadiyah University of Palangka Raya, American volunteers and students are able to gain hands-on experience and help conduct ecological surveys to understand rainforest biodiversity. This expedition was funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services and its Wildlife Without Borders program.
