The Cape Eleuthera Institute offers a unique atmosphere for people of all ages to learn about tropical environments and sustainable design. Our commitment to connect primary research to education and outreach helps to promote environmental awareness and creates a diverse array of opportunities for scientists and students alike. Primary research can be conducted in the fields of tropical marine and terrestrial sciences, resource management, aquaculture, and sustainable design. Courses offered at the Cape Eleuthera Institute also reflect these disciplines. Additionally, our facilities and environment allow us to design curricula that embody a more integrated approach to learning catering to students at the middle school, high school, and college/university levels.

Getting to Eleuthera is relatively easy because of its proximity to Florida and Nassau. In addition, Eleuthera offers many of the amenities found in more developed regions of the world, yet still retains the feel, safety, and serenity of a remote tropical island. For instance, our campus is located only 40 minutes from the town of Rock Sound, offering easy access to an international airport, hardware store, grocery market, and bank with an ATM. We are also close to the small town of Deep Creek which offers wonderful cultural opportunities. For more information about visiting Eleuthera click the link below:
