The Ecology of Bird Loss project works with teachers and students in local K-12 schools and universities in a variety of manners.
  • Marianas Island Forest EcologyThe NSF Research Experience for Teachers program has funded six teachers from local middle and high schools to participate in field research for a summer alongside EBL field crews, and to produce curriculum focused on bringing field ecology into the classroom. Check out our education website here. 
  • Island Ecology Course. We have conducted two immersion field courses focused on the ecology and conservation of island ecosystems - the first was in 2012 and the second in 2015. A total of 28 students from the Northern Marianas College on Saipan, Guam Community College, and the University of Guam have participated in the courses. 
  • School presentations. If you are a teacher from Guam, Saipan, Tinian, or Rota, and you would like to arrange a school presentation on Marianas Island Forest Ecology, please contact Morgan Franke at ecologyofbirdloss at
