Trip to Galapagos Islands open to alumni

Paul Stewart '96 during a 1995 trip to the Galapagos Islands.
Close encounters with sea lions, giant tortoises, amazing lizards, and untold numbers of rare birds are among the experiences that draw visitors to the Galapagos Islands.

Biology professor Robert Rothman has experienced the enchantment first-hand, and has led more than a dozen trips to the islands, located 600 miles off the west coast of South America. He has another trip planned for late May 2002, and alumni are welcome to be part of the 12-member group of students and faculty for the eco-tour.

The trip includes one day in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, before boarding a private ship for a seven-day cruise of the islands, with many stops for hiking, snorkeling and observing the unique species within Charles Darwin's laboratory of evolution.

Reservations are required by Oct. 31. For more information, visit Rothman's Web site at www.rit.edu/~rhrsbi, call (716) 475-5215, or e-mail him at rhrsbi@rit.edu.
