Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos is a group of 13 major islands and dozens of smaller islets and rocks that are the result of volcanic activity. The Galapagos Islands are located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean, the archipelago has been a National Park since 1959. The National Park Administration and the Charles Darwin Research Station, founded in 1964, look after the preservation of the islands, with native mammals, reptiles and birds protected. It is also the home of the famous Lonesome George, the last remaining giant tortoise of his sub-specie.
