On 9 November, we’ll be hearing about Ecuador!
You will have the unique opportunity to be guided through Ecuador, exploring it through our speaker, a staff member of the Veterinary School, Carlos Ayala. Ecuador is where the equatorial line starts and ends! With 13 nationalities co-habiting within this incredible country, the mountains, the stunning beaches including the Galapagos Islands, the jungle, cloudy forest and more, Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse countries in South America.
Brought to you as an interactive presentation, you’ll have the chance to ask any questions you may have at the end! Carlos will share some key fascinating facts and figuers, will recomend top 10 places to visit, tell you the most useful travel tips before you visit Ecuador.
This is a fantastic chance to broaden your cultural knowledge, learn something new and be inspired to visit new places in the future. Not only will you get to learn something new, but you’ll get to meet new people and enjoy some refreshments after the talk.
