Description

Please join us for an information session to learn about the UW Study Abroad program in Tanzania: Critical Perspectives on Ecotourism. This Exploration Seminar is an interdisciplinary course designed to introduce students to the role of ecotourism and conservation in sub-Saharan Africa. Tanzania is one of the most important sites for wildlife conservation and tourism in the world and the country faces many challenges in meeting the demands of conservation, tourism investment and sustainable development.
