Galapagos, Volunteer VS On board Cruises [05:07]
The Biologist Christopher James (from Finding Species) explains about the choices for turists to go to Galapagos, and how the Lead-Adventures Galapagos Experience is not only an affordable choice, but an ecologic alternative that enables tourism revenue to stay in the Islands (for their benefit), and not on the Mainland nor international cruises. This is part of the orientation for all the participants of the Galapagos Experience, operated by Lead-Adventures Ecuador & Galapagos.

Chimborazo from the Air [00:33]
The inactive stratovolcano Chimborazo (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃimboˈɾaso]) is Ecuador's highest summit. Its last eruption is thought to have occurred some time in the first millennium AD. Its summit is generally regarded as the spot on the surface farthest from the centre of the Earth, at a distance of 6384.4 kilometres (3967.1 mi). Chimborazo is located in the Cordillera Occidental of the Andes of central Ecuador, 150 km (93 mi) south-southwest of the capital Quito. It is a neighbour to 5018 m high Carihuairazo.

Under clear conditions the summit of Chimborazo can be seen from the coastal city Guayaquil, nearly 140 km away. The nearest cities are Riobamba (~30 km to the southeast), Ambato (~30 km to the northeast) and Guaranda (~25 km to the southwest). Chimborazo is surrounded by the Reserva de Produccion Faunistica Chimborazo which forms a protected ecosystem to preserve the habitat for the Andes native camelids vicuña, llama and alpaca. The top of Chimborazo is completely covered by glaciers, with some north-eastern glacier arms flowing down to 4600 m. Its glacier is the source of water for the population of the Bolivar and Chimborazo provinces of Ecuador. Chimborazo glacier's ice mass has decreased over the past decades due to the combined influences of global warming, ash covers from recent volcanic activity of Tungurahua, and the El Niño phenomenon ...
