Student internship reports


Students gain hands-on experience in an internship setting through the 'Research in Panama' course (ENVR 451, 6 credits), an independent studies project organized around multidisciplinary environmental issues. The nature of the project centers on practical environmental problems/questions important for Panama. Students form a team which works with Panamanian institutions (NGO, governmental, or research).

Read about these interesting projects and the students' amazing experiences on the following pages. Reports are filed by the year the student took the course, ENVR 451.

Unless expressly stated otherwise, the findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed in the student internship reports are those of the various authors of the work and are not necessarily those of McGill University, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the organizations cited in the reports or the countries they represent.
