The International School for Earth Studies is a facility dedicated to environmental conservation and animal behavior in Ladysmith, Québec. Award winning sustainability and good environmental practices, Earth Studies offers programs that immerse youth in the outdoors, promote a simple lifestyle and care for and learn about a diverse group of animals.
The 500-acre campus is home to both our resident pack of Siberian Huskies and our herd of Canadian Horses. Earth Studies is one of the only wildlife rehabilitation facilities in Western Québec who rescues and releases wildlife.
Our gap year students work directly with the sled dogs, horses and rescued wildlife and learn to manage them. These students are passionate about environmental issues and are solutions seekers. Students deepen their understanding of previous academic studies to influence and shape their future careers.
