SEACOAST SCIENCE CENTER
The Seacoast Science Center is leading a trip to the Galapagos Islands April 21-28, 2012. Info on the trip is below:
Join SSC Naturalist Henry Burke on a family eco-adventure to the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador! Our home base will be the beautiful Hotel Casa Natura on Santa Cruz Island. We will travel by boat to Bartolome Island where we will hike to the summit of this extinct volcano for breathtaking views of legendary Pinnacle Rock and the neighboring island of Santiago. We will view Galapagos penquins and snorkel in waters teaming with marine life, watching for stingrays, spotted eagle rays, sea lions and a variety of colorful tropical fish.
Returning to the Island of Santa Cruz, we will travel to a place with a population of about 2,000 giant tortoises. We will charter a boat to North Seymour Island where we will be introduced to magnificent frigate birds, blue footed boobies, and land iguanas. We will snorkel in an area where sea turtles and rays are often spotted.
Back on Santa Cruz, we will visit the famous Charles Darwin Research Station to learn about its conservation programs and spend time on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Tortuga Bay! We will finish up the week by spending time exploring the beautiful city of Quito.
