Summer Research at The Wetlands Institute
Monday, February 04, 2013 09:41 AM

Hosted by The Wetlands Institute, in Cape May County, NJ, the Coastal Conservation Research Program (CCRP) is a 10-week summer research experience for undergraduates interested in careers in fields related to conservation biology, ecology, and coastal ecosystems.

Located on 6,000 acres of coastal salt marsh, The Wetlands Institute promotes research, education, and conservation through a variety of methods including classes, field research, and local community involvement. The CCRP focuses its research and conservation efforts on issues related to our close proximity to the dense human population of the northeastern United States.

Over the past 20 years, nearly 200 college and university students from over 100 academic institutions throughout the United States and abroad have participated in our program. Our goal is to engage highly motivated undergraduate students in ecological research and community-based conservation. Ten undergraduate students will be selected to participate in this hands-on, field-oriented research program. Student participants in our program are expected to complete a research project during the summer under the direction of CCRP scientists. An annual research seminar is held at the end of the internship where all students give a short presentation of their work. Application deadline is March 1, 2013
