Latitude Zero Talks: Explore Galápagos Islands

 

Galápagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean that shelters a diversity of plant and animal species that is unique to the island and inspired Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution. Join USFQ scholars and educators to gain a deeper understanding of the Galápagos Islands and Ecuadorian culture while exploring what sustainable development looks like in one of the most unique ecosystems on earth.
