The Planet Forward Storyfest 2019 winners traveled with Planet Forward and Lindblad Expeditions for an expedition to the legendary and unique ecosystems of the Galápagos Islands in August 2019, and reported on the unparalleled stories found there.
We had nine students join us — seven Storyfest winners and two students sponsored by their school. We are so proud of the diverse group of students who joined us on the trip this year. They were so focused on creating the best stories they could from this experience. We hope you will learn something from these stories, and that these pieces will enable you to step into these travelers' shoes — even for a moment — and feel as if you were aboard the Lindblad-National Geographic Endeavour II, and experiencing incredible encounters with wildlife, just as they did.
