As part of the Library's celebration of Earth Day, join Jane Shapiro on a journey across the globe to the Galapagos Islands. Have you ever seen a blue-footed booby bird? What does a magnificent frigate bird look like when he’s hunting for a mate? Do you know what a 100 year old giant tortoise eats? Let’s follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and visit the Galápagos Islands to find out the answers to these questions and a whole lot more. Jane Shapiro will take you on a virtual trip to Quito and Guayaquil, Ecuador, and then on to the Galápagos where some of the world’s most unique creatures live in an unspoiled habitat.
