    Overview

    Teeming with biodiversity, the Mediterranean Sea supports more than 17,000 different species, making magnificent Mallorca in the western Mediterranean a special place to focus on sustainability. Here, where Marine Protected Areas abound, you will learn firsthand about marine organisms and their interactions with coastal and marine ecosystems.

    Engage with expert ecologists and biologists in class, in the lab, and in the field as you observe nature, inventory species, and monitor habitats. In the process, you will discover key species under threat from marine pollution and human activity, and how to make a difference. There is also plenty of time to get out on the water and in! Swim, snorkel, kayak, paddleboard; do it all and play beach volleyball too. Immerse yourself in island life and Mallorquin culture through your homestay and meet-ups with local teens. Take in the sights from the medieval Bellver Castle with its beautiful view of Palma to the colorful Olivar Market to the Es Baluard contemporary art museum. And do not miss the homemade almond ice cream at a 300-year-old café!
