Isabela Island

Nov 13, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


It is a real treat to be able to spend two whole days on the Western region on the Galapagos Archipelago. Isabela is the largest island in Galapagos, at over four thousand square kilometers in size, and it is definitely one of the most interested and varied. Formed by five major shield volcanos, it is the home to several endemic species of marine and land creatures, unique in the world.

About the Author

Gaby Bohorquez

Naturalist

Gaby was born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Her first job in the Galapagos was on board a 90-passenger cruise ship as the cruise director’s assistant, and she fell under the spell of the Enchanted Isles. She returned to Guayaquil to study at the Espiritu Santo Technological University to obtain a degree in Tourism Management. Her fascination for the islands was still strong so, after finishing her studies, Gaby took the opportunity to join the Naturalist Guide’s course, jointly organized by the Galapagos National Park Service and the Charles Darwin Research Station. That was back in 1992, and she has been a naturalist since, keeping her deep love and passion for the islands during all these years.
