Apr 22, 2019 - National Geographic Endeavour II
This morning, as a sun tried to break through the low-lying mist, we proceeded to land at Cormorant Point on Floreana Island. There is no other place I would rather visit on this Earth Day than this world among itself in the Galapagos Archipelago. We proceeded to land and encounter unique species including greater flamingos, blue-footed boobies, and diamond stingrays.
As we crossed a peninsula to a coralline white sand beach and Pacific Green sea turtle nesting area, we unfortunately encounter plastic that has washed up onto the coast. Naturalists and guests help to collect this problematic item from the coast that most likely arrived from distant waters. It is a shame that destructive practices like this continue on this planet, however we hope that all of our guests will be ambassadors for the change that this planet needs so desperately.
