Most long-term project sites of CERS have their own infrastructure for accommodation and offer unique opportunities for education. These sites often become bases for scientific research by scholars of different disciplines of studies.


Setting up camp near the beautiful alpine lakeEvery year groups of students visit the CERS Centers to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. With the mentorship of our founder and the guidance by our staff, they experience nature, wildlife and culture in special ways.

In the summer of 2010, a group of high school students from Yung Yau College in Hong Kong became extremely motivated.

"Last summer we [were] invited by China Exploration & Research Society to visit both Yunnan and Hainan island. We did camping in Yunnan Langdu [yak cheese site] for a few days. We visited the facilities [and] tried delicious cheese. During the visit, field biologist Dr. Paul Buzzard made interesting presentations and sharing. We had the most unforgettable experience to meet many kinds of moths. At first, because we are not accustomed to contact with insects, they caused a lot of nuisance for us. However, the moths gave us a great source of inspiration for the story."
