|Lecture:||Galápagos - A Little World Within Itself with Brian Anderson|
|Start Date:||19th November 2017|
|Under 18s:||£14.00 What's included?|
The Galápagos Islands, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, named ‘Enchanted Isles’ by superstitious sailors, and famed for their number of endemic species. The isles were a hiding place for sixteenth century pirates, then visited by eighteenth century whalers, and Charles Darwin on ‘the Beagle’ in 1835. In this richly illustrated presentation, local photographer and adventurer, Brian Anderson, shows stunning images of the unique wildlife, including Galápagos penguins, giant tortoises, marine iguanas, sealions, and blue footed boobies. We also learn how these animals, which frightened early visitors, have adapted to live on this fragile, isolated Pacific archipelago. This talk is a must for nature lovers and those afflicted with wanderlust.
