Galapagos Island Presentation

Wednesday, December 11, 2019

Burlington County Natural Science Club Lecture Series. Presented by guest speaker Barb Bassett. In 2018, Barb spent ten days in Ecuador, mostly in the Galápagos Islands aboard the M/V Evolution on a Victor Emanuel Nature Tour. Lying 600 miles off mainland Ecuador, the remoteness of the islands has given life here the chance to evolve in its own direction. In addition to the special birds of the islands such as Galápagos Penguins, Flightless Cormorants, Waved Albatrosses, and of course “Darwin’s finches” of every shape and size, Barb will highlight some of the other curious creatures that make the Galápagos famous: marine and land iguanas, brilliant Sally Lightfoot crabs, and 500-pound Giant Tortoises. She will also take us underwater where the group identified over 50 fish species plus Pacific green sea turtles, Galápagos sea lions, and giant mantas.
