Though Charles Darwin spent only a short time on the Galápagos Islands, the diversity of flora and fauna he documented on these remote volcanic promontories has forever linked his name and ideas to the iguanas, sea lions, albatrosses, and blue-footed boobies that call this landscape home. Following in Darwin’s footsteps, travelers come to the Galápagos to see biodiversity at its best.
