Brian Morgan and I represented Adventure Life at the annual IGTOA meeting in Guayaquil (International Galapagos Tour Operators Association). It was a great learning opportunity for me, as there were many actors present at the meeting - other tour operators, yacht owners, NGO representatives, government officials, etc. Each brought a unique perspective to the issues surrounding the promotion of sustainable tourism in the Galapagos.
While I attended the meeting, Pete enjoyed a private tour the White Hills Reserve near Guayaquil. The forest they hiked through was beautiful, and my dad saw countless interesting bird and plant species.
