Think you've discovered Galapagos? Think again!

We are pleased to announce the return of Galapagos Day this year after a two year break. In partnership with the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) we will be showcasing our exciting new interactive web-based resource Discovering Galapagos in a unique event format.

Guests will embark on a one-of-a-kind journey of discovery around the prestigious RGS building travelling through special zones matched to aspects of the project. Exhibits will offer a range of material from digital interactive activities from the Discovering Galapagos website through to historical memorabilia from the Voyage of the Beagle. There will also be the opportunity to attend a suite of talks on a range of topics by experts in their field.

Speakers include:

  • Kelvin Boot, natural history writer and BBC broadcaster
  • Jason Ali, Associate Professor of Earth Sciences at the University of Hong Kong
  • Henry Nicholls, author of The Galapagos: A Natural History
  • Ian Dunn, CEO of the Galapagos Conservation Trust

Other exhibitors include:

  • Members of the 1972 Cambridge and London Galapagos Islands Expedition
  • David Gordon, Chairman of The Book Bus
  • Randal Keynes, great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin and a walking Galapagos library
  • Charlotte Moreton, ecologist and artist
  • Amie Shuttleworth and Jon Waite, sustainability engineers with 3 months on the ground experience in Galapagos in 2014

We hope to see as many of our supports as possible at this event to join us in re-discovering Galapagos, so book now before it's too late!
