The Global Leadership Adventures summer program in the Galapagos is focused on learning about the conservation efforts in the Galapagos Island. This archipelago where Darwin formulated his theory of natural selection is a living classroom and one of the most unique places on earth.
However, its fame is also bringing massive tourism and foreign currency and is creating an economic boom attracting migrants from the mainland. This is putting development up against conservation.
This slideshow and narrative from the New York Times perfectly captures the situation. It’s a beautiful slideshow that is totally worth watching!
