Galapagos trip to benefit EcoMinga

It has been a while since I’ve written a post; I was away in the jungles of Peru for much of this time. We have a lot of catching up to do!

Today I’d like to announce a trip to the Galapagos organized by two of EcoMinga’s directors. Part of the proceeds will go towards the operating expenses of EcoMinga, so if any readers have been wanting to go to the Galapagos, here is your chance. There is an optional extension into the Ecuadorian Amazon where I used to live; this is as exciting as the Galapagos!

Here is the information I have received about the cruise and extension:
