This summer, Cambodia’s freshwater ecosystems become your classroom, from Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake to the mighty Mekong River. Travel across Cambodia, starting with the ancient Angkor Temples of Siem Reap and Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake – the Tonle Sap Great Lake. There, you’ll learn about the link between hydrological dynamics, biodiversity conservation, food security, and livelihood outcomes. Visit important ecological sites along the Mekong River and study endangered species, hydropower development, water governance, and discuss key conservation issues that impact freshwater ecosystems. End the program in the vibrant capital city of Phnom Penh. 

  • Homestay in a floating village of the Tonle Sap Lake: Practice species identification, monitor endangered species, interview local communities about their livelihoods, and participate in a rice growing activities with a rural farmer in Siem Reap. 
  • Take a week-long expedition to explore the Mekong River, learning about river ecology, visiting a hydropower dam, assessing environmental impacts, and discussing Irrawaddy river dolphin conservation.  
SFS students live and study at the Center for Conservation and Development Studies – our most urban Center – which lies on the outskirts of Siem Reap, near the famed temples of Angkor. The Center is a breezy, modern campus nestled in a quiet neighborhood minutes away from the bustling downtown area where you will find restaurants, shops, and markets with unique Cambodian flair. The program travel across Cambodia ending in the capital, Phnom Pehn.
