The Galápagos and I
In August, I traveled with eight other Planet Forward storytellers to the Galápagos Islands. Needless to say, we were all ecstatic; I couldn’t believe I would have the opportunity to stand where Darwin stood and witness the inspiration to his revolutionary theory of evolution. Walking through the archipelago as a scientist, environmentalist, and just a human being, I was inspired by all the stories and lessons inscribed within the beauty of the ecosystem.
