The International Conservation Society is now offering an internationally recognized Certificate
in Conservation & Environmental Management. The location is in one of the most important ecosystems on earth- the Leuser
Ecosystem. The campus is just a short walk from the entrance to the Gunung Leuser National Park and the Bohorok Orangutan
Rehabilitation Center in Bukit Lawang, Indonesia. This certificate is available as both a hands-on field certificate in the
Rainforests, Cultural Preserves and Marine Preserves amongst Indonesia's rich biodiversity, natural and cultural heritage,
and as an online certificate program. Both certificate programs offer guaranteed job placement in the conservation field.

The International Conservation Society proudly sponsors Brewster TESOL institute for those
desiring to Teach English to speakers of other languages. Certificates are available from $69. We offer both online TESOL/TEFL/TESL
certificates as well as an onsite, face to face course with live practice teaching real ESL students. Our residentrial TESOL
courses are also conducted at the International Conservation Society headquarters at the Indra valley Inn in Bukit Lawang
Indonesia, just a short walk from the entrance to the Gunung Leuser National Park and Bohorok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center. All
of our courses include guaranteed job placement, and proceeds support the International Conservation Society. For more information

We work closely with the TESOL field because the TESOL field provides many environmental education
opportunities for young students in foreign countries, as environmental education is an important part of many ESL curricula.
Also, many English teachers working abroad participate in a great deal of environmental education, volunteer work and
ecotourism in the countries where they work.
For those who enjoy ecotourism, or simply traveling to other lands and experiencing other
cultures, teaching English abroad is the perfect opportunity. Most schools pay extremely well compared to the local cost of
living, and reimburse your roundtrip airfare.
We are coupling this with free environmental education outings in the Sukabumi area for the local
course participants, including in Gunung Halimun National Park, a major West Javanese nature preserve that acts is a sanctuary
for a number of interesting species of flora and fauna, including the endangered Javan Gibbon and Javan Hawk Eagle.
We believe this program will assist the environment both by supporting the local people and
allowing them more economic stability and by providing current and future teachers the opportunity to become familiar with
environmental issues in their area and thus incorporate these issues into their curriculum.
We also firmly believe that by improving the educational system in Indonesia we believe that the
environment will benefit as a result of the reduced economic disparity that will ultimately ensue.
Classes at the International Conservation Society's Batavia University will soon begin
for the next semester. Enrollment proceeds will support the International Conservation Society's continuing quest for worldwide
environmental education, reform and preservation.
Field courses are featured in the Gunung Leuser National Park, the "center of the conservation universe"
in and near the Bohorok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center and the quaint jungle village of Bukit Lawang.
Highlights of Batavia University's environmental education program are environmental education
field courses, such as Komodo Studies on the Isle of Komodo, Primate Studies in the rainforests of Borneo and Kalimantan,
and Vulcanology at such monumental sites as Krakatoa, Tambora, and Toba, to name a few.
Schools include the John Muir Institute of Environmental Studies, the William Shakespeare Institute
of Literary Arts, and the Theodore Roosevelt Institute of Social, Political and Historical Sciences.
We offer free online textbooks and academic resources to all students. A 50% tuition discount is
available exclusively to International Conservation Society members.
We will also contribute to the free online learning community by offering free access to our online
course content as we institute it for the upcoming semester.
