        LAS ENCANTADAS is the Chapman University Galapagos Documentary, now available for download via the link below. A group of students joined two researchers on a trip spanning two weeks, and dozens of islands, in Ecuador's Galapagos Archipelago. Dr. Fred Caporaso and Dr. Peter Pritchard have been visiting their tortoise-heaven for three decades, and continued to do so in search of data & findings about the progress of these unique animals. As hired by the university, It was my job to capture a very special part of the Chapman experience; The journey of learning that occurs in a group of students taken to an enchanting and inspired land, laden with environmental and socio-economic issues. Carrying more than 40lbs of equipment and shooting over 16 hours of high-definition footage, I did my best to capture the unique behavior of the endemic wildlife as well as the student reactions and emotions. Though much of the footage is left out, and other obligations during my senior year forced me to leave it in a near rough-cut stage, the project still should be seen and enjoyed by those around the university. The sequences are as follows: 00:01 - Prelude 1:56 - Introductions 5:00 - Behind the Course 8:17 - The man, the myth, the Pritchard 12:40 - Arriving 16:13 - Isla Santa Cruz 17:35 - Tortuga Bay 22:50 - De Roy House & The Darwin Finches 27:45 - 4th of July Interlude 28:43 - Roca Redonda 31:30 - Mangrove Ponga Ride 36:00 - Galapagos Dolphins 38:48 - Beneath the Surface 42:05 - The Final Hike 48:02 - Dr. Pritchard's Research 54:30 - Tortoise Heaven 57:10 - Conservation and Making a Difference 59:42 - Saying Goodbye 64:05 - Credits Host & Instructor: Dr. Fred Caporaso Lead Researcher: Dr. Peter Pritchard Students: Allison Caporaso Raelynn Tepper Tony Cuseo Karen Cassebeer Lisa Edwards Adam Fox Kehau Kashnig Lindsay Clopp Matt Molino Brought to you by: Schmid College of Sciences & The Chapman Center for Global Education

          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!

                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.
