El Salvador

In spring 2014, Environmental Studies offered a topics course called “People and Protected Areas.” The course dealt with the historical, political, cultural, and economic issues communities face living in and around protected areas, especially in Latin America. The course met at the same time as a course taught by award-winning cinematographer Matt Jacobson.

In the summer, a group of Environmental Studies and Film Studies students traveled to El Salvador to produce a series of public service announcements about living sustainably in and near protected mangrove ecosystems in a biosphere reserve surrounding the Bay of Jiquilisco.
