Gardner Beach and Punta Suarez

May 20, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today the National Geographic Endeavour II anchored in front of Espanola Island, the oldest island of the archipelago. This is a very unique island, where we can spot many different animals that we cannot find elsewhere in the archipelago, like the albatrosses, endemic mockingbird and lava lizard.

About the Author

Ixora Berdonces

Naturalist

Ixora was born in the Galapagos Islands, back when the streets were made of sand and gravel. Void of TV and tablets, her childhood friends and pristine natural surroundings made for an inspiring upbringing. She was always drawn to the ocean and her local environment, with her first adventures taking place underwater, in mangrove estuaries, and perched in treetops. Not surprisingly, she was scuba diving before the age of 12 and led her first diving trips as a Dive Master in the Galapagos Marine Reserve when she was 18.
