Join us this October for our annual Galapagos Day at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).

This year’s event will take you to the underwater world of the Galapagos Marine Reserve to discover the mysterious and enigmatic wonders of the ocean. From giant whale sharks to endemic marine iguanas, we will be celebrating the incredible diversity of the Galapagos Islands, and would love for you to join us.

With talks from TV presenter, explorer and marine biologist, Monty Halls, and BAFTA award-winning BBC filmmaker, James Brickell; you will have the opportunity to relive their wildlife adventures, and then put your questions to the experts themselves. Throughout the evening, you can learn more about our latest conservation projects and appeals, as well as our award-winning education programme, Discovering Galapagos. There will also be the chance to find out about the latest global marine issues, such as water pollution and marine plastics.

From Galapagos-themed art to an exhibit of artefacts from Darwin’s HMS Beagle voyage, we have got it all covered. To round off the evening, we will be giving away a fantastic selection of prizes in our Galapagos Day raffle.
