Santiago Island

Nov 28, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

This Island has a rich human history in the Galapagos. It has been visited by explorers, whalers, pirates, and of course the most famous Galapagos visitor, Charles Darwin. Due to so many visitations, the introduction of non-native animals to the island has had quite an impact on the ecosystem, often influencing the surroundings in a negative way.  

Today we had the opportunity to see the amazing restoration work carried out by the Charles Darwin Station and the Galapagos National Park Service.
