Visual tour of the Galapagos Islands

 

By Judy Buehler

Rideau Valley Field Naturalists

 

An archipelago of unrivalled beauty, mystery and amazing creatures, the Galapagos Islands are the topic of speaker John Kerr-Wilson at the Sunday, Nov. 4 meeting of the Rideau Valley Field Naturalists.

 

From near extinction of some species in the 1800s, the Galapagos Islands are now a UNESCO World Heritage site and home of the Charles Darwin Research Foundation site. Giant tortoise, lava lizard, land iguana, blue-footed booby, waved albatross and sea lion are just a few of the species you can expect to see if you take a trip to this living laboratory of evolution.

 

John Kerr-Wilson, long-time member of the Rideau Valley Field Naturalists will share his recent Galapagos experiences via a power-point presentation.

The general public is invited to join the RVFN for their meeting at 2 p.m., Sun., Nov. 4, in the All-Purpose Room at the Perth and District Indoor Swimming Pool on Wilson Street at Sunset Boulevard. There is a small admission fee of $5.00 for non-members.
