In Honor of Earth Day

This Sunday is Earth Day. We’d like to mark the day by honoring our guests, whose generosity and thoughtfulness has done much to protect the planet’s wild places.

Just this month, many of our guests in Galápagos took time off from their expeditions to work with the national park service removing invasive blackberry and replacing it with the Cafetillo, or Psychotria rufpes. This shrub serves as a buffer zone around the last remaining stand of the giant daisy, Scalesia pedunculata, an endemic plant of Galápagos that forms a forest of elfin-like ambience of mosses and lichens.

See a few of the other amazing things our guests have done for the Earth.
