Event: "A trip to the Galapagos Islands" 

Date: Thursday 11th October 2018 6:45 – 8:30 pm

Where: David Attenborough Building, New Museums Site, off Pembroke St

 

Paul Hoxey will talk about his recent visit to the Galapagos Islands which included a short stay on the island of Santa Cruz and a cruise of the westernmost islands of the archipelago: Fernandina and Isabela. He will show pictures of some of the abundant and very tame wildlife that is to be found there including many endemic species. The Galapagos is a small group of islands of volcanic origin straddling the equator in the Pacific Ocean. They are world famous for their unique wildlife and for the visit of Charles Darwin in 1835, whose observations on the islands led him to develop his theory of evolution.

Tea and coffee will be available from 6:15 pm
