The Galápagos Islands are truly one of the most unique places on ea rth. Lying 600 miles off mainland Ecuador\, the remoteness of the islands has given life here the chance to evolve in its own direction. This was not just a birding expedition so in addition to the special birds of the i slands such as Galápagos Penguins\, Flightless Cormorants\, Waved Albatro sses\, and of course “Darwin’s finches” of every shape and size\, Ba rb will highlight some of the other curious creatures that make the Galáp agos famous: marine and land iguanas\, brilliant Sally Lightfoot crabs\, 5 00 lb. Giant Tortoises. She will also take us underwater where the group identified over 50 fish species plus Pacific green turtles\, Galápagos se a lions\, and giant mantas. It was an unforgettable experience!\n\nBarb B assett is a Jersey girl having lived almost all her life in NJ. She has a lways had a love for nature and the outdoors. She worked summers in Cape May but the birding bug did not hit her until her two children started ask ing “what’s that bird?” After working for Campbell Soup for over 30 years\, Barb semi-retired to form her own packaging consulting business w hich allows her to follow passion for birding and nature. She is voluntee r naturalist for NJ Audubon\, Cape May Bird Observatory\, NJAS Young Birde rs Club\; an active member of DVOC (council\, communications committee\, a nd Facebook contributor)\; a member of the Gloucester County Nature Club\; a naturalist aboard the Osprey Birding by Boat\; and one of the volunteer Spring Watch migration counters at Coral Ave in Cape May Point. She curr ently splits her time between Clarksboro and Cape May Point.
