Connecting with Nature 2021 webinar

About this event

Don’t miss Galapagos Conservation Trust's Connecting with Nature webinar on 13 May at 6pm (UK time) which will be hosted by British explorer and environmentalist David de Rothschild.

The loss of jobs and income in Galapagos due to the halt in tourism during the pandemic has increased the pressure on the Islands’ natural resources and, in turn, could damage the very biodiversity that tourism relies on. Alongside supporting initiatives that will provide sustainable employment and training opportunities, GCT thinks it is just as important that we continue our education and outreach activities during these challenging times in order to ensure that the young people in Galapagos become more connected to their environment.

Through a series of short videos and talks, we will explore how we engage children and teenagers throughout their education, and how we encourage them, and their families, to protect the Islands and its wildlife. Speakers include GCT Education and Outreach Coordinator in Galapagos Anne Guezou, GCT partner Ashleigh Klingman who runs the Urban Family Gardening Project and GCT partner Diana Pazmiño who runs Gills Club which engages girls with shark science.
