The genetic testing maze: who is there to support you?

A trip to the Galapagos islands

Paul Hoxey will talk about his recent visit to the Galapagos Islands. He will show pictures of some of the abundant and very tame wildlife that is to be found there including many endemic species. This small group of islands is world famous for their unique wildlife and for the visit of Charles Darwin in 1835 whose observations on the islands led to his theory of evolution.
The second talk in the autumn programme of Cambridge Natural History Society.

Cost: Admission £3; CNHS members £1.50; students with ID 50p; ARU Wildlife Society and Cambridge University Nature Society members free.
