2. Galapagos Sea Lions: Sheep Dogs of the Ocean
March 01, 2018

In the remote archipelago of the Galapagos, extraordinary is ordinary. The diverse volcanic landscape of the islands is home to some of the most unique plant and animal species on Earth and, from Charles Darwin's ground breaking Theory on Evolution to Sir David Attenborough's masterpiece nature series Blue Planet II, its contribution to our knowledge of the natural world is unsurpassed.

3. The Ambush of the Sally Lightfoot Crab
March 01, 2018

A Galapagos wildlife cruise introduces nature lovers to some of the most remarkable marine and terrestrial animals on the planet. While the Giant Tortoise and the Marine Iguana are probably the best known of the archipelago's species, the quirky Sally Lightfoot Crab also garners its fair share of attention, and its intense blue and red livery is a common sight scuttling along the islands' shores and in the shallows. Eat and Be Eaten Grapsus grapsus has a hugely diverse diet, feeding on everything from sea lion placenta to ticks and organic matter washed up on the shore. The species ... (read more)

December 13, 2017

The Galapagos Islands is home to one of the most unique ecosystems on Earth. This "living laboratory" off the coast of Ecuador continues to play a valuable role in our studies of global ecology, to shape and challenge everything we know about natural science.

5. The Green Sea Turtle of the Galapagos Islands
December 13, 2017

In the archipelago of the Galapagos Islands, off the southern coast of Ecuador, the wildlife is renowned for its unique adaptations to the remote volcanic habitat. Much of it is endemic and, due to both environmental threats as well as human interference through predatory introduced species and disease, unfortunately many species are also classified as endangered. One of these is the Galapagos Green Sea Turtle, the only species of sea turtle to nest in the archipelago. For nature lovers on a wildlife cruise in Galapagos, seeing these wonderful gentle creatures in their natural marine hab... (read more)

6. Wonder in the Waves: The Galapagos Marine Wildlife
December 13, 2017

Located around 1,000 km off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos archipelago has been called its own "world within a world", and it's an apt description. This remote and beautiful part of the planet is home to some of the most unique wildlife species on the planet, many of which are endemic. But while we often focus on the terrestrial species, those that live in the oceans that surround the islands are every bit as fascinating and – for wildlife watchers who visit on a Galapagos wildlife cruise – just as exciting to encounter. The Marine Species of the Archipelago Nowhere else can yo... (read more)

11. Saving the Landbirds of the Galapagos Islands
November 23, 2017

The wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is the most uniquely adapted in the world. It was in this archipelago, off the coast of South America, that naturalist Charles Darwin based his research that subsequently became his ground-breaking "Theory of Evolution". Today the archipelago is a popular place for eco-tourism, with a wildlife cruise in Galapagos often sitting at the very top of a nature lover's wish list. But in spite of – and, in some cases, because of – the islands’ remote geographic position, many of the species face serious threats to their survival, and some are already extinct.... (read more)

12. Life in the Dry Season on Galapagos
November 23, 2017

Usually, the words "dry season" conjure up visions of arid, less than favourable conditions. But for the remote archipelago of the Galapagos Islands, the dry season is anything but boring. Unlike some other destinations around the world, the dry months are actually an ideal time for nature lovers to embark on a wildlife cruise in Galapagos. It doesn't experience a typical tropical climate, and between July and December is actually a time of great activity, migration and breeding. What Happens During the Dry Months? The archipelago experiences two distinct seasons: the dry and th... (read more)

14. Great News for the Galapagos Penguins
November 23, 2017

The wildlife of the Galapagos Islands has fascinated us since naturalist Charles Darwin brought them to the attention of the world through his groundbreaking voyage of discovery in the early 1800s. His research in the archipelago formed the basis of what was to become his revolutionary theory of natural selection. In later years, this group of islands off the coast of Ecuador has become a popular place for eco-tourism. There are few places on Earth that offer such insight into the machinations of our natural world and, for wildlife enthusiasts, Galapagos holidays can be one of the most me... (read more)

16. 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...

17. 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)

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

The Galapagos Islands have become a highly aspirational destination for wildlife lovers and those interested in the history and geology of our planet.

October 30, 2017

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. For anyone planning wildlife holidays in Galapagos, knowing a few of these before the... (read more)

20. 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)

21. 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.

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)

23. 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)

24. 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 wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is world-renowned, with nature lovers travelling from all over the world to encounter its unique and iconic species.

The coastal plants are extremely hardy and resistant to salty conditions, while the ... (read more)
