Our fieldtrips are fully customised to the needs of schools and they all have a strong educational focus, whether this be Biology, Geography, or Environmental Sciences. In addition to this, we provide the opportunity to include adventure, cultural immersion, community service and teambuilding into a trip to ensure students get the most out of their experience.
We work with teachers to identify and target the specific learning objectives students need to achieve during the fieldtrip. Producing tailored itineraries and a student workbook unique to the trip, we make sure that your fieldtrip is exactly that: yours from start to finish.
In small groups of 10-12, students work with a dedicated member of the Ecofieldtrips team to maximise student interaction and participation and ensure that everyone benefits from a personalised learning experience.
On our fieldtrips we are with you every step of the way. Meeting you at your school or at the international airport closest to your field site, we accompany you to and from all locations, ensuring a smooth and stress free journey.
Our Syllabus Specific trips cater for a variety of different curricula, including the International Baccalaureate at Diploma, MYP and PYP levels, A-level, Advanced Placement, iGCSE and O-level. We offer Biology, Geography, ESS and CAS focused trips and can even combine two or more subjects in one trip. These trips are the pefect compliment to classroom teaching and can be used to collect data for coursework.
Our Experiential trips are all about getting students out of the classroom and immersed in the natural world. These trips provide exciting, interesting and memorable experiences. Students come away with a broader understanding of the world around them as well as having developed personal skills and strengthened bonds with their peers through the shared experience.
For university students, we offer a Dissertation programme which enables students to gain key practical experience in tropical ecology fieldwork. Students design their own projects within one of our research themes under the supervision of our experienced field staff. Our aim is produce meaningful research, of benefit to the conservation and management of some of the most important tropical ecosystems in the world.
Ecofieldtrips offers fieldtrips in a range of locations throughout SE Asia, including Bali, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. All of our eco-friendly venues provide comfortable accommodation for students in a safe and secure environment.
At the heart of everything we do at Ecofieldtrips is a desire to increase awareness of environmental and social issues, as well as make a difference that benefits the people and places we visit. Whether it is one of our own initiatives or a partnership with local NGO's, we help students give back to the communities and environments in which they are working. From conservation programmes like the International Coastal Clean-up or mangrove replanting at the Kula Gula Bird Sanctuary, to humanitarian projects such as the Rohingya Refugee School or the Rumah Sehat Cows for Villages, there are countless ways for students to help. Each of these projects benefits from the hard work, donations and awareness raised by the fantastic school groups we bring in and this allows students to go away knowing they have made a genuine difference and with a greater understanding of the environmental and social issues that will shape their futures. With our ideal of "Think Globally and Act Locally", we show students how even their small actions can make all the difference and help create a brighter future for our planet.
