The presentations will be given by the scientists of each of the projects who will share the results of their research with the attendees. Their stands will be distributed around our Research Station. In addition, we will host a theater play (Acción Nativa), yoga and the participation of the Casa de la Cultura. During the Open House, which will be from 08:00 to 16:00, you will be able to enjoy locally produced food, thanks to the presentation of community enterprises such as Nero, Atún sin Lata, Pan y Salsa, Sweet Baked and 1835 Coffee Lab.
Our Shark Ambassadors Science Club will have a special space of environmental awareness, where they will share the lessons learned during this year.
In the morning, we will be welcoming schools, while in the afternoon, public and private institutions, NGOs, and the general public will be able to visit us, with the aim of enhancing the attendance experience.
We cordially invite everyone to learn more about CDF and its links to research and science in Galapagos.
