The Galapagos Islands came to the attention of the world when Charles Darwin published “Origin of the Species” in 1859. However, they were known to mariners hundreds of years earlier and to giant tortoises thousands of years before that. The islands are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site referred to as a “unique living museum and showcase of evolution.” They provide a scenic volcanic landscape that is home to a host of animals including marine iguanas, land iguanas, penguins, sea lions, and the blue-footed booby. Our presenter, Richard Lion, will relate his experiences as an independent traveler to this fascinating destination.
The next presentation will be Thursday March 6th where we will explore India -
We look forward to seeing you in February!
