Marking 10th Anniversary of Field Course with Mahasarakham University in Thailand

“We have managed to conduct this annual field course despite the pandemic – both last year and this year. And it was somewhat bittersweet, as this is the only field course (across all our program countries) that we will be able to conduct in 2021. Mahasarakham University also hosted a special seminar to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this field course. The past 20+ months have been a real challenge. Thank you to all the wonderful MSU students and staff.”

Great first day of our 10th anniversary Field Course in Conservation Biology & Global Health with our partners at Mahasarakham University, Thailand.

The Team. It has been a true pleasure working with Dr. Tanee, Dr. Thamsenanupap, (Mahasarakham Univ., Thailand), and Dr. P. Kyes (WaNPRC @UW) – beginning with our very first field course in 2012. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary Field Course in Conservation Biology & Global Health, I want to express my gratitude to this team and all the others who have made this program a great success.
