The wildlife

The Galapagos Islands are home to some of the highest levels of endemism (species found nowhere else on earth) anywhere on the planet. About 80% of the land birds you will see, 97% of the reptiles and land mammals, and more than 30% of the plants are endemic. More than 20% of the marine species in Galapagos are found nowhere else on earth. Favorites include the giant Galapagos tortoise, marine iguana, flightless cormorant, and the Galapagos penguin — the only penguin species to be found in the Northern Hemisphere.

The islands

The Galapagos islands are approximately 1000km offshore of mainland Ecuador. They are made up of 18 main islands and 4 minor islands, 97.5% of which are designated as Ecuadorian National Park land in an effort to protect the incredible biodiversity that inhabit the islands.
