Giant Tortoise Galapagos Ecuador

Wildlife

We always refer to the Galapagos as one destination. What many people fail to realize though is that there are 18 independent and unique islands. In fact, certain wildlife can only be found on specific islands. The Galapagos penguin only lives on Fernandina and Isabela; red-footed boobies are most prevalent on Genovesa; even Floreana has an endangered mockingbird named after it. As such it is clear that if you choose to see only a couple of islands, you could be missing out on a great deal of fantastic wildlife.  We are all for venturing off the beaten path, but not when you’re in the Galapagos. Visitors are required to stay on marked trails and maintain a distance of at least two metres (six feet) from wildlife. Though they might try to approach you, never touch or feed the animals, as it can be harmful to their health.
