Located in the Pacific Ocean, about 1,000 km (620 miles) away from the South American continent, these 19 islands and the surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique ‘living museum and showcase of evolution’. At the confluence of three ocean currents, the Galapagos are a ‘melting pot’ of marine species. Ongoing seismic and volcanic activity reflects the processes that formed the islands. Those, together with the extreme isolation of the islands, led to the development of unusual animal life such as the land iguana, the giant tortoise and the many types of finches. These animals inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection after his visit in 1835.
