Galapagos - WLC Galleries

Pictures from our 17 day trip begining  December 1, 2016  with the  National Geographic / Lindblad  Epic Galápagos Photo Expedition, aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II

The Galápagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean and is considered one of the world's foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing.

A province of Ecuador, it lies about 700 miles off its coast.  Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else.

Charles Darwin visited in 1835, and his observation of Galápagos' species later inspired his theory of evolution
