Destination: Galapagos Islands Cyber Field Trip
Welcome to the Destination: Galapapagos Islands

Bienvenidos a Galapagos!

Welcome to Destination: Galapagos Islands! This website will take you to a place of true scientific wonder. The Galapagos Islands have been central to the study of biological adaptation since Charles Darwin visited there in 1835. In this unique location, so abundant with fascinating science stories, you'll join host Alan Alda, the Frontiers crew, scientists and School Program ambassadors Sherri Steward and Mandy Williams for the filming of Voyage to the Galapagos, a science special that aired on October 5, 1999, at 8 p.m. ET on PBS. This expedition is a first-ever opportunity for teachers, students and other Frontiers fans to take a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a Frontiers special! Before you set out on your adventure, take some time to learn more about your companions and your travel plans.
