Pinzon Island

 

 
 



To say the least the Galapagos are located in the middle of nowhere, a land time has forgotten, where life flows at a relaxed pace. This isolation has allowed new forms of life to develop. Evolution played its game in the archipelago, an environment that is harsh and so unattractive at first site hides the greatest secret of them all: “the creation of life”.

The islands have little by little started to become beautiful, basic forms of plant life start giving way to rainforests, small ponds have become lakes. The species in the Galapagos have learned to adapt and evolve to survive. Who would think of birds whose beak changes from one island to another, birds that learn to swim and cannot fly anymore. All these secrets inspired Charles Darwin in the development of his theory of evolution.
