I believe the expedition to Belize was a great success. It has helped me grow as a professional in the biological sciences field and allowed me to become a better educator. In addition, I hope to put together a syllabus and application to develop a General Tropical Ecology Course for students at Upper Iowa University. Below are a collection of pictures taken by various UIU faculty while in Belize.
