TELL ME MORE ABOUT: The Galapagos Islands


Welcome to my new series: TELL ME MORE ABOUT: where I will be sharing resources from my favorite past adventures around our planet during this time when we cannot travel due to COVID-19. In the next weeks, I will share about all 10 trips in my recent article on Ms Magazine and I wanted you to have access to the photos, articles and videos that I produced from these experiences.

Witnessing—and Helping Preserve—Biodiversity in the Galapagos

Often, when I travel, I think I am going to learn or see one thing—but when I arrive, I discover much more than I expected.

Ever since then, and for many decades, I have dreamed about the birds, tortoises and endemic creatures of the islands and wanted to see them myself.

I finally made that dream come true when I traveled on Ecoventura’s Theory in December of last year. Not only did I see the blue-footed boobies, but I also learned that there are red-footed boobies, and Nazca boobies with orange beaks. READ THE REST Cultivating Curiosity in the Galapagos Islands

My Galapagos trip also was in the January 17, 2020 print edition of the Jewish Journal!
