Jackie spent last spring in the Ecuador Tropical Ecology Program, studying in the field and at Universidad San Francisco de Quito. My time in Ecuador allowed me to immerse myself in Ecuadorian culture and take away a better understanding of the language, ideals, and way of life. The highlight of her experience, though, was a 10-day trip to the Galapagos Islands, the place, she says, that ties everything together for me. Like Darwin and countless naturalists before her, she reveled in the biodiversity found in the archipelago. That such a small country could preserve and protect such biodiversity is something to look up to, she says.
