David Bickford

The ACM Costa Rica field experience was the first point in my development as a tropical field biologist. I first fell in love with the tremendous biological diversity and density of cool critters in the tropical rainforest in Costa Rica during my field project working in the la Reserva Forestal de Rio Macho. Being able to do an independent project in the playground of the tropical forest was perhaps the most exciting time for me as a scientist and a person. Costa Rica offers a wonderful opportunity to learn about biology in the field and the great synergy of the immersion programs of language and culture is what makes this program really stand out.
