Environmental Studies in the Dominican Republic
Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!
Head down to the warm island of the Dominican Republic located between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. This island can be viewed as a microcosm of the world. The country offers a perfect platform for comparison as it manages the same environmental issues as Canada, including solid waste management, protection of national forests, impacts of climate change on agriculture and oceans, and renewable energy vs. fossil fuels.
Arrive in Las Canas and partake in a shoreline cleanup and waste audit during a beach walk. Then visit Taino Farm to see a sustainable farming design that works with the surrounding ecosystem for a true farm-to-table production process. Trek through the abundant flora of El Choco National Park and explore one of the many caves that house clear freshwater reservoirs. Next, visit Chocal Chocolate Factory to see how the cacao bean is grown, harvested, fermented, processed, and transformed into delicious melt in your mouth chocolate!
