Galapagos Islands

The Galápagos Islands form a volcanic archipelago situated in the Pacific Ocean, renowned as a prime global location for wildlife observation. As part of Ecuador's province, these islands are located approximately 1,000km off the country's coast. The isolated landscapes of the Galápagos provide a sanctuary for a wide array of plant and animal species, some of which are exclusive to this region. Notably, in 1835, Charles Darwin explored these islands, and his observations of their unique species played a pivotal role in shaping his theory of evolution.
