Small and rather inconspicuous, Española lies in the southeastern region of the Galápagos Islands. Being one of the oldest islands of the archipelago, several of the species that inhabit this arid island are unique and endemic, not found anywhere else in the world. No humans are permitted to live on Española, so this special place belongs entirely to unique and beautiful creatures like Galapagos sea lions, waved albatrosses, marine iguanas and many others. Protected by strict regulations of the Galapagos National Park Directorate, these amazing animals remain ecologically naïve, almost oblivious to our presence.
