An Awe-Inspiring Biodiversity

The Galápagos Islands will inspire you to think differently about the world. They will open your eyes, expand your mind, and allow you to treasure this planet we call home. When Charles Darwin first arrived in the Galápagos, he was not sure what he had discovered. He had been sailing on the HMS Beagle for more than four years before arriving on the volcanic islands. The biodiversity found on the island, and Darwin’s research, helped shape our understanding of evolution and natural selection.

The Galápagos are home to many animals that cannot be found anywhere else in the world, like the marine iguanas. Darwin himself was not a fan, referring to them as  “clumsy lizards… imps of darkness.” This isolated group of volcanic islands and its fragile ecosystem allows you to become aware of our actions, and the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the United Nations. During this trip, you will learn how to keep the human footprint to a minimum, the importance of animal welfare, reforestation and much more.
