ESS Field Trip

ESS stands for Environmental Systems and Societies, during their classes, students explore the human impact on the environment, watch endemic species of flora and fauna in their natural habitat and learn more about the world surrounding them. During the recent ESS field trip the students went to Vayots Dzor. The region is included in the WWF Armenia Wildlife Preservation Region and focuses mainly on observing leopards in the wild. Preservation methods include surveillance of the species through cameras installed in the woods, training for local experts aiming at developing tourism and teaching them methods of conservation of the natural habitat of endemic species and the entire ecosystem.
