Jun 25, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Travelling to the western realm of Las Encantadas is like travelling back in time. Fernandina and Isabela islands are the largest and youngest of the Galapagos Archipelago, and their elegant, majestic shield volcanoes rise tall over the Bolivar Channel, which divides both islands. This remote area is quite pristine and relatively untouched, with rather simple food chains and unique species found nowhere else in the world. Galapagos remains as one of the last oceanic archipelagos that still keeps around 90% of its original biota, and its preservation is a high priority for both Ecuadorians and the international community.
