So,  you all might be wondering where we’re going to be staying in Dominica.  We will be residing at the Institute of Tropical Marine Ecology (ITME), which is a field station located in the village of Mahaut.  This institute is great for visiting researchers as well as university groups such as our Tropical Marine Ecology class.  Facilities offered include lecture rooms, dorm-style accommodations, a computer room, and don’t forget the cafeteria (yay, food!).   This station operates just like a mini-campus.  Oh, and it’s also environmental friendly.  They support local farmers and fishermen as well as minimize negative environmental impacts.  I think it’s a perfect place for students from an environmental college, don’t you? 

For more information on the facilitiees of ITME, you can visit their website:

  1. does the government of Dominica require that the Unity College group follow any special requirements as a scientific expedition? permits for collecting? restrictions on removing flora and fauna for preservation or examination?
