Wildlife in the Galapagos Islands

Most of the visitors that visit Galapagos Islands, mainly come to see the rich biodiversity these islands contains, not only on above the land. There are also rich species living inside the water. Snorkelers and divers delight seeing colorful fishes, playful sea lions, and even the occasional orca. What makes the Galapagos Islands special is their nature. The islands give a close-up view of evolution, where Darwin’s finches and many other species keep evolving in isolation. By practicing responsible tourism, we can help protect this amazing ecosystem so future generations can enjoy and learn from it.

Why Galapagos Wildlife is Special?

Galapagos is found far away from the mainland as it is miles away in the ocean. There are no large amount of species on Galapagos islands as compared to the other large forests. The truth is it’s hard for species to survive on a land like this, it’s saying that the importance of the Galapagos Islands isn’t just because they have a lot of different species. Instead, it’s because the animals and plants that live there have developed special characteristics/traits that help them survive in the specific conditions of the islands. So, it’s not about having lots of different kinds of creatures, but about each creature being really good at living in its own environment.

Natural selection takes place over the globe it’s real as we can take the example of Galapagos islands. The “Charles Darwin Station” on the islands makes them even more special and interesting for visitors.  The station is named after Charles Darwin, a scientist who visited the islands and developed his evolution theory there. At the station, scientists continue Darwin’s work by studying the unique plants and animals found on the Galapagos. They also work to protect these species and their habitats.
