Santiago is Lindblad’s adopted island. Our guests enjoy getting involved in our programs to eradicate introduced animals, thereby helping to preserve the island’s ecosystems. The Galapagos Islands are a unique place full of endemic animals that cannot be seen outside this little world within itself. The animals here are known as ecologically naïve, which means that the animals are not afraid of humans. Wild animals in the Galapagos are very curious, and they do not run away from people. Take a look at our photos to see what a wonderful experience this adventure can be.
