Galapagos Islands – Living organisms museum


The Galapagos Islands, also known as “Cologne“, are located on the eastern Pacific equator, which is a collection of islands formed by the lava from the bottom of the ocean. In it, Isabela is the largest island with an area of 4588 km2.

In addition, Santa Cruz and Santiago are two islands that are formed from eight large islands and over 100 small, area about 8000 km2. The Galapagos Islands is a province located 1000 km from Ecuador, with 96.6% of the area being national park, and a population of about 10 thousand.

The Galapagos is a volcanic archipelago with many high-altitude mountains and bizarre hostile boulders. In 1535, the Spanish came here and discovered on the island that there was a large, unprecedented species of turtles that had never seen the island named the Galapagos, meaning “big Turtle Island”.

However, it is near the equator, but due to the influence of cold air flow from Peru, the climate here is dry and cool. The lush tree grows plus the immense ocean of sheltered oceans has made the Galapagos an ideal ecological environment.

According to experts ‘ surveys, on the island there are more than 700 living high-altitude species, more than 35% of which are unique species of the region. There are also over 80 birds and many species of insects, but the most famous are still turtles and giant lizards. Tropical animals such as sea lions, sea newspapers, and penguins also frequently appear here. These are the reasons why the Galapagos islands are called “the largest natural museum in the world“.

The Galapagos Islands are one of the few areas that converge the exotic flowers and rare animals of the world. In 1978, this rare “living creatures Museum” is listed on the list of cultural and natural Heritage worlds. On the island, apart from a large amount of turtles, giant lizards and a lot of birds also have penguins, seabirds and sea newspapers. The reason is that when cold air streams from the polar region pass through Peru to “devour” the islands, the heat is markedly dropped, the climate is moderately dry, just cool so the formation, pull according to the “guests” from the Antarctic sea tourism under The cold airflow is settled here.

The jagged volcanic lava rocks are the ideal environment for living animals, stunning landscapes and fresh natural air as the most unintended gift for any visitors to come here.

The lighter boats glide over the surface of the waves, dolphins that joke and water waves, and the tide that shuts down after the mountain range forms a gentle lively painting, an undescribed beauty of the Galapagos Islands.
