Holiday GUIDE #1 Upbeat Times in the Galapagos! About the Galápagos Islands:


The Galápagos Islands are an archipel- ago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacifi c Ocean surrounding the center of the Western Hemisphere west of continen- tal Ecuador, of which they are a part. The Galápagos Islands and their sur- rounding waters form the Galápagos Province of Ecuador, the Galápagos National Park, and the Galápagos Ma- rine Reserve. The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species and were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His observa- tions and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin’s theory of evolu- tion by natural selection.
