IFS gave me the opportunity to explore and appreciate a truly unique part of our planet. Every day was a new adventure. I saw plants and animals that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. The staff was amazing and the experience was educational, fun, and memorable.

The IFS field study experience at the Forfar Field Station on Andros Island, The Bahamas, was a great learning experience. The field station was right on the beach, and we went on excursions to coral reefs, island blue holes, and other attractions on the island every day. As someone who is interested in doing marine science in the future, learning about coastal and island ecosystems was a helpful exposure to the field. In addition, the frequent snorkeling trips to the various spectacular reefs gave us an idea of what it would be like to have a research job in the marine sciences. Overall, I learned a lot on the trip; it is one of the reasons why I am still studying marine science today.
— Shraddha Pingali, Freshman at Boston University
Forfar is a well-kept secret from the rest of the world. The rustic experience of living on the beach in a community with experts in their field was absolutely amazing. I learned so much about conservation, and about the flora and fauna of the Bahamas.

Forfar made my Bahamas experience! The staff was friendly and really made an effort to be involved in everything we were doing. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience, I wouldn’t have wanted to experience the Bahamas in any other way!
