2005 Ecuador Excursion


The summer of 2005, Aurora Lights sponsored an environmental education trip abroad, taking college students in a 450 Environmental Law Perspectives class to various parts of Ecuador. While there, students had first hand conversations with activists, environmentalists, and educators that live and experience the effects of environmental abusers. Students researched and produced an array of projects involving everything from the Texaco Valdeze Oil companies and their affect on the locals, to indigenous peoples and their use of endangered environmental items. Students were also given the opportunity to teach and experience with other student peers, the relationship between the MTR issues in southern WV, and the oil destruction in Ecuador.
