More info

Having emerged from the waters of the Pacific Ocean 3 to 5 million years ago, the nineteen volcanic islands that make up the Galápagos Archipelago hold an exceptional biological wealth, despite their lunar appearance. They are notably home to the only species of sea iguana in the world, and to eleven subspecies of giant tortoises, or galápagos in Spanish, which leant their name to the archipelago. While most who sail to the Galápagos are merely enchanted by the place, Darwin’s studies there inspired his theory of the evolution of species. The recognition of the Galápagos Islands as a national park in 1959 and as a marine park in 2001, as well as their inclusion on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1978, has made it possible to protect nearly all of their exceptional biodiversity. Yet the islands suffer from tourism, demographic growth, and illegal fishing off their coasts. Introduced species, both domestic and wild, are a danger to this natural laboratory of evolution and are the most important direct threat to these insular ecosystems. In 2007, the Galápagos were added to the List of World Heritage in Danger.
