New York, NY, May 2011 ‐ This summer Lindblad Expeditions (, the pioneering expedition travel company with a strong commitment to responsible travel, is opening the door for teachers to explore Darwin’s laboratory with an exclusive two‐ for‐one offer to Galápagos.

No matter how many National Geographic specials you have seen, nothing can prepare you for the magic of being in Galápagos, a natural habitat for some of the world's most interesting and unusual animals.Teachers will come face to face with wildlife that has never developed a fear of people, snorkel with playful sea lions, kneel beside marine iguanas, marvel at Galápagos penguins and visit the Charles Darwin Research Station.And with the benefit of Lindblad’s 40+ years in Galápagos and the unparalleled expertise of their Lindblad‐National Geographic expedition team, teachers will return with a wealth of knowledge to educate and inspire their students.

The 10‐day itineraries are offered on select 2011 summer and fall voyages aboard the intimate 48‐guest National Geographic Islander and the 96‐guest National Geographic Endeavour.

The offer is open to teachers defined as any PreK‐12 educator. The offer is valid for first‐time Lindblad travelers only and new bookings only, and is not combinable with any other offers. Airfare is not included. It is available for all cabin categories and is based on double occupancy. Rates begin at $5,230 ($2,615 per person).
