In Past Meetings by Glenda RossLeave a Comment

September 28/17  Our guest speaker will be Alison Roberts-Zschoke:  everyday life in the Galapagos;  Paradise vs Reality.  While the natural beauty of the archipelago can hardly be disputed, a growing population dependent on tourism makes conservation a difficult task.  This presentation will give an introduction to the Galapagos Islands and discuss how tourism and conservation are negotiated and manipulated by the local population.  Using photos from their 6 month stay in Puerto Ayora, the presenters hope to shed some light on everyday life in these “enchanted islands” in the Pacific.
