2. Man vs Wildlife - Creating a Sustainable Society on Galapagos
October 30, 2017

The Galapagos Islands are primarily known for their abundance of unique wildlife and as the place in which Charles Darwin's conducted the research that led to his Theory of Evolution. For those who explore the area on a Galapagos wildlife cruise, a visit to this fragile, fascinating chain of islands is a once-in-a-lifetime experience; but for more than 25,000 people, the archipelago is home. A Growing Population Since the 1970s the population has increased greatly, with more than 75% of the current number having migrated from the mainland. Human occupation is restricted to an area th...

3. Reptiles of the Galapagos Islands
October 30, 2017

For avid nature lovers, a small group wildlife cruise in Galapagos affords a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to encounter a wide range of unique animals, including a host of fascinating reptiles. The local habitat is extremely favourable for reptiles and the original arrivals were more than likely washed up on the shores attached to driftwood or vegetation that came from mainland South America. Because they can subsist on very little water, many more of them would have survived the journey than their mammal compatriots. Over the ensuing millennia, they evolved to adapt to their habitat in... (read more)

4. The Role of the Charles Darwin Foundation
October 30, 2017

Thousands of visitors arrive every year to embark on a wildlife cruise in Galapagos, for the opportunity to encounter the unique species of flora and fauna for which it has become famous. There are few places more important than this remote archipelago in terms of evolutionary biology.

Most nature lovers who embark on wildlife holidays in Galapagos are familiar with the archipelago's most iconic wildlife species, which include the Giant Tortoise, the Lava Lizard, the Marine Iguana, the Galapagos Sea Lion and the Blue-Footed Booby. But while the wildlife has been studied and documented extensively, from Darwin's first forays to the scientists who actively work to ensure its conservation into modern times, there are also some lesser-known facts about these wonderfully unique species.

6. Understanding the Weather of the Galapagos
October 30, 2017

The Galapagos Islands are blessed with a climate that means there's never really a bad time to visit. Visitor numbers to each of the islands are strictly monitored by the national park conservancy, however, so most wildlife holidays in Galapagos tend to be in the same peak periods in order to minimise the impact on the habitat and animal species. While the archipelago is on the Equator, the weather is not tropical. It has its own microclimate that could best be defined as sub-tropical in nature. There are two seasons – the dry season and the wet season – and, while it can be visited year... (read more)

7. The Anatomy of an Archipelago
October 30, 2017

For anyone with an interest in natural history, the group of islands collectively known as the Galapagos Archipelago is one of the most fascinating places on the planet. The region is renowned for its unique wildlife and the vital role it played in naturalist Charles Darwin's research, from which he developed his revolutionary Theory of Evolution. While the majority of visitors on guided Galapagos holidays arrive to experience a close encounter with the iconic wildlife, learning a little of the area’s geologic history can enrich the experience even beyond expectation. The Anatomy o... (read more)

9. The Flora of the Galapagos: The Humid Zone
September 27, 2017

The varied flora of the Galapagos Islands survives in markedly different vegetation zones, which are spread across the archipelago. The regions commonly known as the "humid zones" are found only in the higher elevations of the largest islands and comprise three separate types of vegetation: Pampa (and ferns and sedges), Miconia and Scalezia. The Humid Zone Flora of the Galapagos The different habitat zones of the archipelago are created by their vastly differing environmental factors, including the amount of precipitation, temperatures, winds and, primarily, their elevation. The lus... (read more)

10. The Coastal Zone Plant Life of the Galapagos
September 27, 2017

As a remote archipelago, all of the Galapagos’ species of plant life arrived in the islands at some time or another. Birds transported the majority of seeds, while some were carried by the strong prevailing winds, and the remainder were washed in on the flotsam and jetsam of the oceans. The plants that survived and propagated all shared the same hardy features, however, and as pioneering species, they had to adapt in order to thrive in the salty, volcanic environment. Exploring the Galapagos Flora For those with an interest in botany, exploring the Galapagos is an endlessly fascinat... (read more)

The Vegetation Zones The three distinct vegetation zones of the archipelago are the coastal, the humid and the arid zones. The coastal plants are extremely hardy and resistant to salty conditions, while the ... (read more)

12. Whale Sharks: The Gentle Giants of the Galapagos Islands
September 27, 2017

Of the 32 shark species of Galapagos, the massive Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) is by far the largest. These gentle giants of the ocean are, in fact, the largest living fish in the world. While they're found in the majority of the planet's warm and tropical oceans, the Galapagos Marine Reserve – which encompasses the waters surrounding this unique archipelago – can boast an interesting phenomenon as the region is particularly attractive to pregnant females of the species. For anyone planning a visit to this unique island chain, learning more about the shark species of Galapagos is vital ... (read more)

13. The Sharks of the Galapagos Islands
September 27, 2017

The marine wildlife of the Galapagos archipelago is considered some of the most biodiverse on the planet. Among the vast array of marine animals are 32 of the world's 400-plus species of sharks. In fact, the waters that encircle the northwest of the chain, around Darwin and Wolf Islands, are so rich with these intriguing and much-maligned creatures it's been officially designated as the densest population in the world.

14. The Galapagos Giant Tortoise and Seed Dispersal
September 27, 2017

For wildlife lovers, one of the highlights of a Galapagos holiday is the opportunity to encounter the iconic Galapagos Giant Tortoise. This massive terrestrial reptile is one of the most high-profile species of the archipelago and plays a vital role in its extremely biodiverse ecosystem. Recently, however, scientists researching the harmful spread of invasive plant species around the islands have discovered a disturbing possibility; the tortoises may potentially become part of the very problem that threatens their habitat. The Giant Tortoise's Role in Seed Dispersal The Giant Tortoi... (read more)

September 27, 2017

As one of the most unique regions on the planet in terms of its wildlife, many of the birds of Galapagos are very well known.

August 23, 2017

For anyone embarking on a Galapagos cruise, knowing a little about the archipelago's role in the development of Charles Darwin's theories on natural selection will enhance the experience, even beyond an encounter with the islands' unique wildlife.

August 23, 2017

For participants planning on a Galapagos cruise, there are multiple "bucket-list" experiences awaiting the avid nature lover.
