Basic Information:

Ecology Project International (EPI) is a conservation and education organization that specializes in working with students and teachers to increase understanding of conservation efforts in local communities and participation in valuable scientific research.  They work in partnership with research communities for students to gain firsthand knowledge and experience in gathering scientific data in the field.  Students will also participate in their own research and receive guidance in forming a testable research question, gathering data, interpreting data, and presenting their findings in the field.  Community outreach and service are part of each program and EPI works with local communities to expose students to local traditions and people through meaningful work within the community.
