The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware will hold the eighth Darwin Day Celebration online from 10:30 a.m. to noon Feb. 11.
Professor Carla Guerrón Montero will present “Darwin Was an Ecotourist: Evolution, Conservation and Tourism in the Enchanted Island.”
She will share a brief history of the expedition to the Galapagos Islands and the islands’ multispecies encounters. She will also discuss the tension between conservation and development that permeates this history and which successive Ecuadorian governments have attempted to resolve through ecotourism.
Ms. Guerrón Montero is an applied cultural anthropologist trained in Latin America and the U.S. She specializes in the anthropology of tourism, the anthropology of food and the African diaspora. She is a professor of anthropology and associate director of the Center for Material Culture Studies at the University of Delaware.
