DESCRIPTION

This course is aimed to highlight the importance of conservation biology in managing endangered marine species by emphasizing in recent conservation efforts of umbrella species such as sea turtles and sharks in the Pacific of Costa Rica. Marine ecosystems of the eastern tropical Pacific provide a baseline source for species of high commercial interest in satisfying humans demand for food worldwide. However, numerous marine species are threatened by unsustainable human activities, such as overfishing and habitat destruction. We will develop a critical understanding of conservation biology, deepening in the general concept of biodiversity in species and ecosystems. We will analyze current case studies that focus on scientific investigations to answer critical life history aspects, recovery programs, species management, community conservation actions, and Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The students will also be introduced to a wide range of practical activities by visiting field stations and natural laboratories in Costa Rica.
