              • A fisherman on Galapagos


                from Kaffe Matthews Added 94 1 0

                Captain Tito has lived and worked as a fisherman on Santa Cruz, Galapagos since he was 15. From fishing freely in the archipelago to the growing restrictions and accusations of damaging fish stocks to the recent situation of working with marine scientists, he and the local fishing community have had to experience many changes. Kaffe Matthews met him in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, together going out fishing in the archipelago and hearing about his shark hypnotizing techniques used with the Migramar research for capturing sharks to tag. Here he talks of the changes he and the fishing community have experienced on Galapagos in the last 30 years. How the growing invasion of advancing technological fishing techniques, foreign ships of tourists and fishermen have affected the marine environment and also their livelihood. Combined with the growing economic power behind the expanding demands of tourism, he and his fishing colleagues, often shouting to be heard, have had to adapt and evolve their understanding and ways of living for them, their families and this precious marine life to survive.

                    • Galapagos Islands with National Geographic 4/30 - 5/7 2011


                      from Eden Divine Added 1,620 4 0

                      Hello Fellow National Geographic Galapagos Travelers! Yes, I edited our trip video last year, but, I waited to post it with the intention to re-edit it, shorten the educational narratives, correct a few typos, etc. etc. However, I didn't get the opportunity to look at it until today, many months later, many adventures later! I will re-edit someday, but honestly, I kind of like the leisurely pace of the first edit! Our Galapagos video is shot in high definition using a Sony HDR-XR500V HandyCam, edited in iMovie, on a MacBook Pro Laptop. It is a "thank you" to my family for sharing this extraordinary eco-adventure, but I included everyone on our trip in the video! So, sit back when you have some time, click full screen mode, and re-experience our Galapagos! Fyi: The video chronicles each day of our trip. It is one hour in length, so feel free to advance forward and move around on the timeline to see what YOU want to see (as you would on a DVD). Enjoy!
