Darwin Station Director proposes ambitious infrastructure plan
Sven Lorenz, the young, dynamic director (and CNH Tours friend) of the Charles Darwin Foundation and its Research Station (CDF) announced today his "EXTREMELY ambitious" infrastructure projects for the CDF. According to Lorenz, if realised, the plans "will have a transformative effect on the organisation but also on science, conservation and education in Galapagos. Benefits for the bio-diversity of Galapagos, for Ecuador as a nation as well as the local community, and with effects to be felt for the next 50-100 years."
He also explained that as I side-effect, it will would to the CDF becoming financially sustainable, for the first time in its five decades of operation.
