Galapagos

Galapagos | Galapagos | Scoop.it
Today, the strange story of a small group of islands that raise a big question: is it inevitable that even our most sacred natural landscapes will eventually get swallowed up by humans? And just how far are we willing to go to stop that from happening? We are dedicating a whole hour to the Galapagos archipelago, the place that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution and natural selection. 179 years later, the Galapagos are undergoing rapid changes that continue to pose -- and possibly answer -- critical questions about the fragility and resilience of life on Earth.

Boatload of 99 Animals Sail Down River in Shanghai to Illustrate Environmental Crisis

Boatload of 99 Animals Sail Down River in Shanghai to Illustrate Environmental Crisis | Galapagos | Scoop.it
New York-based, Chinese-born artist Cai Guo-Qiang is back with The Ninth Wave, his newest installation and solo exhibition in Shanghai. Reminiscent of his work last year, which consisted of 99 life-sized fake animals gathered around a watering hole, The Ninth Wave features a weathered fishing boat from Cai’s hometown of Quanzhou carrying 99 fabricated animals onboard. Artificial pandas, tigers, camels, and other beasts cling to the worn ship, appearing weary and seasick. The work, inspired by Ivan Aivazovsky’s 1850 painting of the same name, evokes the Biblical tale of Noah’s Ark in a grimmer light.
The fishing boat set sail on July 17, navigating along the Bund on the Huangpu River before ultimately landing at Shanghai’s Power Station of Art, where it will become an indoor installation as a part of the artist’s major exhibition from August 8 to October 26. Cai’s work highlights Earth’s current environmental and ecological crisis, as evidenced by high levels of smog in the air, as…

Alizon Llerena: 'Me preocupa que Galápagos no sea lo que fue'

Alizon Llerena: 'Me preocupa que Galápagos no sea lo que fue' | Galapagos | Scoop.it
Introducción: Cuando Alizon Llerena habla de su hijo Josué (de 7 años), sus ojos se ponen más verdes, como si brillaran. Él es el único amor más poderoso que Galápagos para esta mujer especializada en Herpetología. Desde que llegó hace 17 años a las islas, su conexión con ese territorio ha sido muy fuerte, al punto de sentirse completamente desubicada en su natal Ambato. Por eso, no se ve viviendo en ningún otro lugar del planeta y su plan de vida incluye hacer todo lo que pueda para ayudar a que el archipiélago se mantenga intacto.Alizon es una de las casi 340 000 madres solteras que hay en el país, según el último censo. Y no se complica por serlo.
