Our David meets Sir David Attenborough

This month’s celebrity photo shows our director and ‘Mr Galápagos’ David Horwell meeting his hero David Attenborough. This was at a fund-raising dinner by the Galápagos Conservation trust, after their annual Galápagos Day event. For those interested in recent scientific research of the Galápagos archipelago and conservation of the ‘enchanted isles’ we suggest that you become members of The Galápagos Conservation Trust (UK) or your local ‘Friends of Galápagos’ organization. Each couple who books a Galápagos trip with us will be given a year’s membership to this laudable non-profit organization (UK only). David Attenborough has had a long association with the GCT and has taken part in debates and enthralled audiences at London’s Royal Geographical Society with his stories about filming his iconic wildlife documentaries. David Horwell is a leading authority on Galápagos having worked there as a naturalist guide in the Galápagos in 1978 and has been leading small group tours there almost every year since 1985 when this company was founded. He is author of Galápagos Wildlife: A visitor’s Guide (Bradt travel guides) and written many articles about the archipelago.
