Today our guests experienced Santiago Island. This is the island that Darwin explored the most when he visited the Galapagos back in 1835. Darwin camped on the island of Santiago for a week, together with some crew of the HMS Beagle. While on the island, Darwin studied Galapagos marine and land iguanas, and collected finches, mockingbirds, insects and plants. Most of the species that Darwin collected were unique to the islands, and it was during this time on Santiago Island that Darwin noticed that the Galapagos wildlife was strangely unafraid to humans.
