Nov 20, 2017 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Floreana was the first island in Galapagos to be colonized by people. Ecuador took possession of the Galapagos Islands in 1832 and stablished a penal colony in Floreana Island. When Darwin visited the Galapagos in 1835, the second island he landed on was Floreana. During his stay, Darwin met with some of the convicts and explored the highlands.
