WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

The enormous sweep of the grasslands and plain was amazing as was the symbiosis between such disparate creatures as the zebras and wildebeest. We watched a baboon jump on our land cruiser hood and proceed to unscrew an antenna.

Dr. Dallmeier has developed many training programs in biodiversity research, monitoring, and conservation and has taught several hundred university students and professionals. He represents the Smithsonian Institution on advisory boards for both conservation and governmental organizations and has worked with UNESCO, Environment Canada, and regional partners to develop forest biodiversity monitoring programs and capacity building for sites around the world. Together with Environment Canada in 2008, he led the International Symposium on Climate Change and Biodiversity in the Americas.
