Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation (CTEC) at Antioch University New England is committed to supporting education and research in tropical ecology, conservation and the sustainable use of tropical ecosystems. CTEC works to create links between New England and the tropics.

Our objective is to help people find creative, long-term solutions to the rapid loss of biodiversity in the tropics. We do this by training the next generation of world environmental leaders who embrace the interdisciplinary nature of conservation through an ecological, social, political, and economic context.
