Located 600 miles west of Continental Ecuador and on the Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos Islands are perhaps the most precious treasure humankind has in terms of ecological, wildlife and evolutionary studies. This claim is validated by UNESCO’s declaration of the isles as “World Natural Heritage” and by other scientific studies.
But why are these islands so important to humanity, or why should anyone visit them?
Not only are these islands attractive for their volcanic origin and their magnificent beauty, but also, as mentioned before, because of the story they encrypt about the evolution of the species on the planet. Charles Darwin formulated his “Theory of Evolution” based on his differentiation studies of species from island to island, noting how resource and geographic endowments affected their adaptation and evolution.
