Feb 09, 2018 - National Geographic Islander
Today we are going to visit Puerto Ayora which is located at the south part of Santa Cruz Island and it seems that no one onboard the National Geographic Islander is ready to return to civilization. But today the expedition team has prepared a different point of view of what it means to be part of the Galapagos community. During our visit to the National Park and Charles Darwin Research Station we learned that not just scientists and politics work for conservation, it’s a team effort, from kids to the older habitants of the island. Each one of the visits on the Galapagos Islands have something special, and Santa Cruz is no exception. Wild Giant tortoises at el Rancho Manzanillo is the highlight of the day. This experience allowed us to have an idea of how Puerto Ayora kids have grown in a healthy and safe place in contact with nature.
