Prince Charles to visit Galapagos | March 11th, 2009

The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall are to visit Galapagos as part of 10 day tour to South America to promote environmental sustainability and climate change.  The visit is timed particularly to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Darwin, 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species and also the 50th anniversary of the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galapagos National Park.  This will be an excellent opportunity for the threats to the Galapagos to be highlighted.
