Science and Conservation at the Edge of a Volcano in Galapagos


In July 2017. I spent a week working and living on the edge of Alcedo Volcano on Isabela Island in the Galapagos. I could not have asked for a better team than my travel companions of Freddy Cabrera, Ainoa Nieto Claudin, Surya Castillo, Joshua Vela and José Haro. This trip was part of the larger Galapagos Tortoise Movement Ecology Programme as well as part of Dr. Ainoa Nieto Claudin’s PhD work.

Ainoa wrote a really nice blog that has been shared on the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galapagos Conservation Trust websites. Ainoa did such a nice job on capturing the trip that I share her blog here as well.
