OXFORD, OHIO – Pulaski resident James Hefti, a master’s student in the Global Field Program from Miami University’s Project Dragonfly, will travel to Belize in summer 2015.
Hefti will study coral reefs, manatees, howler monkeys, jaguars and other wildlife while learning the methods communities are using to sustain them.

Since the program began 10 years ago, Project Dragonfly’s Earth Expeditions graduate courses – on which the master’s programs are based – have engaged more than 1,700 people in firsthand educational and scientific research at critical conservation field sites in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas.
Dragonfly is located in the biology department at Miami University, a state university in Oxford, Ohio. Miami was established in 1809 and is listed as one of the eight original Public Ivies.
