An incredible place

The Galapagos Islands, or "Archipelago de Colón" as it's officially known in Spanish, are found about 1000 kilometers of the Ecuadorian coast in the Pacific Ocean. They're famous for their biological diversity and for being one of the places after which Darwin based his theory of evolution. That aside, it's an incredible place to see giant turtles in their natural habitat and go diving with fish and sharks.

Evolving on the galapagos

Six hundred miles from the Ecuadorian coast, at the intersection of the Humboldt and Cromwell ocean currents, along the equator, sits the famous archipelago whose diverse array of flora and fauna has conclusively shown the immutable logic of evolutionary change and the unstoppable resiliency of life itself.

From times immemorial, the island has welcomed visitors of all varieties. Armed with their cameras and guidebooks, skin glistening with sun-tanned lotion, sporting big, black rimmed glasses, they disembark their luxury cruise boats and hop onshore to Puerto Moreno, the largest town on Isla San Cristobal. Travel to the Galapagos Islands hits the wallet hard and most visitors have deep-pockets. We watch them walk through San Cristobal’s quiet streets snapping photos of the huge sausage-like sea-lions dozing on the beaches. Their children marvel at the lobster-red crabs clinging furiously to the sides of slippery boulders pummeled by wave after wave. On the fence, sits a bemused pelican, beak protruding like Pinocchio’s balaclava, overlooking the crabs, possibly mustering the courage to take a bite. A scaly iguana darts in between the rocks flashing his tongue.

Below, back on the beach, a sea-lion pup has stumbled away from his mother and she barks – a horrible, biting sound. The others stay still. The young pop has not mastered his flippers on land and he never will.

He bumbles his way to the fence separating him from the tourists and slithers through an opening. The children scream in delight; flashes burst in unison. The pup pops in front of the group of delighted guests and stares at them. He does not show fear. He does not sense danger. His wrinkled fat shines in the sun; his whiskers slope around his face which croons up and stretches around. His mother has reached the opening herself and lets loose a horrible cry that forces the young children in baseball caps and pink shorts to cover their ears. What does the mother know that the pup does not? Her movements are threatening and desperate. A child reaches to the touch the pup’s glassy coat before his father quickly admonishes him. He is held back. And as the pup silently complies with his mother’s bellicose bite, we bear witness to the divide.

Formed by the movement of tectonic plates and hot spot volcanism in the Pacific Ocean, the islands’ isolation originally rendered them empty of plant and animal life. Eventually, they came: flying, swimming, seeds pushed by winds, or sea-lions pulled by currents. Chance guided colonization. That life appeared on the Galapagos Islands was a wonderful accident.

The tour group begins their trudge to the museum up a stony pathway through the dark green, rolling vegetation. The afternoon’s clouds come and with them heavy humidity. I leave my group of volunteers and head to the other side of the pier. We are volunteering with an Ecuadorian NGO organizing a summer camp for the children of the island. We run sports games, art lessons and English classes. Basically we make sure that no child wanders off into the sea. More and more families call the islands home. More and more people come from the mainland searching for a different and a quieter life.

Life on the lava-spewed islands blossomed in an unbalanced fashion: no natural equilibrium of species exists on the island. Reptiles trumped amphibians; land and sea birds outnumbered land mammals; grasses and ferns dominated big-seeded flowery plants. Only those who could have crossed those 600 miles of open water called Galapagos home.

The children have endless energy. The littler ones – 5 or 6 years old – attempt to escape the school at any moment; they wait until our backs are turn or whenever we happen to be preoccupied and to the gates they fly. Such exuberance! Practically frustrating, philosophically spell-binding. It is Carnival week and the excitement builds to the point of anarchy. Water balloons are tossed; paints decorate clothing and walls. No teacher is spared. The playground buzzes like a beehive; the movement is chaotic yet hypnotic. A rhythm is there. Flashes of joy, pure ignorant joy, come in waves. It flows over the ground and into their eyes, their sinister, naughty eyes. Water spills and splashes. Clothing is soaked. We wipe our eyes and dry our clothes. Humanity’s at its best as a child at play.

The future was not bright for the pioneer species on the harsh and barren islands. What would they eat? How would they reproduce? Many plant and animal species did perish only to leave their organic material for the next wave of immigrants. This cycle of life and death happening on isolated and unique islands over millions of years provided the ideal laboratory to judge what worked and what failed there. How would these creatures survive? Would they adapt? How did life work?

Across the bay’s calm waters, the town looks young. The bright yellow and red concrete buildings do not fit the vibrant green background. They appear vulnerable to nature’s vagaries, out-of-place. Not of the soil. An anchored motorboat gently rocks close to the shore; a sea-lion sleeps on top. Volcanic mounds lie scattered across the horizon; the thick clouds roll past them. The entire scene is ominous: lava or rain? How odd it is to gaze at the work of human hands – the roads, the houses, the schools, the airport, the hospital – on the islands that provide the best conditions to understand from where humanity sprouted. What was once reciprocal has become an infringement. The scene is one of betrayal.

In 1835, Charles Darwin arrived to the islands. The diversity of life on the small islands amazed him and eventually inspired him to write his Theory of Natural Selection, one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs. Darwin loved finches. He noted at least thirteen different kinds of finches living on the islands all of which must have sprung from a single ancestor ve arrived to the islands millions of years ago. Each finch responded to the ecological pressures of each island – particularly diet - and adapted accordingly. Species in fact are not static. They change, mutate, adapt: Evolve. From this original insight, Darwin saw that competition between species over finite resources is inevitable. This triggers an advantageous mutation within a species which improves its odds of breeding and surviving over the others. Those best adapted to their environments will survive. Evolution motors natural history.

We hear stories of illegal fishing and of oil spills. The islands are under persistent threat. Over-Development. Pollution. Natural Calamities. Demographic Pressures. One afternoon I walk to El Progresso, a community of a few homes and shops located in the hilly interior of the island. The landscapes are a deep green; volcanic hills force the rocky road around them. I walk. Rickety wired fences and telephone poles follow the road winding around the pristine rainforests. When you think of the Galapagos, you think of the animals. You don’t envision this: a lost world. The nutrient rich ground has painted a masterpiece: I hear people saying in the future ‘as green as the Galapagos.’ Up the road a few kilometres is the tortoise sanctuary. Hundreds of years old, these majestic creatures live slowly. Appreciating their massive shells and thick legs, I wonder what they've seen. Could I read the island’s history through their eyes? Do they know its future?

Near the end of camp, we take the children to a beach not fifteen minutes from town. We have them in rows with teachers manning the ends to spot any fugitives. The beach mixes four layers of colors: the black of the volcanic rocks sitting at either end of the beach, the green grass running from the water back up into the hills, and the turquoise of the ocean waves crashing into the sand’s sugary whiteness. The interplay of colors holds; its vibrancy arrests and affixes. The children go screaming into the water; we wade out up to our knees to keep check.

A child cries “Lobos” and with the frenzy of a Zebra herd under attack they all rush from the water. Lobo is a local colloquialism for sea-lion and the children do not relish the idea of sharing an afternoon swim with them. When all appears safe, they gingerly re-enter believing as cold swimmers would that slow re-immersion best alleviates discomfort. The interaction is fascinating. The potential is real. On the islands where we first understood that change is intrinsic to life and only the dead remain immutable, a gradual symbiosis emerges. A coalition based on mutual respect and fear, of awe and terror, evolves between humanity and nature. We are not written in stone. We are not born pre-programmed. And perhaps in the place where Darwin crushed a static understanding of life and breathed a new dynamism into its gorgeous complexity, we can learn to coexist. And the houses will cease to look absurd and the fish will have time to return.

It is the arrogance of the living that says now is forever. Change is the one constant. And if the relationship grows strong on the Galapagos, perhaps the archipelago can serve as a light into not only our collective pasts but also our collective futures.

Galapagos

All the animals in Galapagos have a character difficult to describe. It really is like they pose for pictures yet don't even notice we are there. Evolution.

The final frontier of preservation

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Galapagos Islands. It completely opened my eyes to the beauty which is preservation. The animals there had no fear of humans, no predators, nothing. The only place in the world where the entire ecosystem is predator-free.

Magnificent frigate birds, blue feet boobies and iguanas of land

North Seymour is a small island located near the island of Baltra, a small volcanic island not far from Santa Cruz. The vegetation is low but this is the ideal island for those who want to see land iguanas, which are characterized by bright yellow, beautiful magnificent frigate birds and blue feet boobies. As with most of the islands of the Galapagos this island you can visit if you take part in a cruise or a day tour that starts just a few days a week from Santa Cruz. The cost for the tour which includes this island and snorkeling with sharks at a short distance starts at $ 120 per person, the cost includes lunch on the boat and licensed nature guide. The tours start at 8 am and return is generally scheduled for 16. No matter how small this island is one of the most beautiful Galapagos given the particular characteristics of the animals, particularly the frigates, which can not meet in the other islands. It appears that here also there is the highest concentration of Blue feet boobie, these animals characterized by paws blue, typical archipelago.

Fregate magnifiche, blue feet boobies e iguana di terra

Nord Seymour è una piccola isola collocata vicino l’isola Baltra, una piccola isola vulcanica a poca distanza da Santa Cruz. La vegetazione è poca ma questa è l’isola ideale per chi vuole vedere iguane di terra, caratterizzate dal colore giallo brillante, le splendide fregate magnifiche e blue feet boobies.
Come per la maggior parte delle isole delle Galapagos questa isola si può visitare se si prende parte a una crociera o con un tour giornaliero che parte solo alcuni giorni a settimana da Santa Cruz.
Il costo per il tour che include questa isola e snorkeling con gli squali a poca distanza parte da $120 a persona, il costo include pranzo in barca e guida naturalistica autorizzata.
I tours partono alle 8 del mattino e il ritorno generalmente è previsto per le 16.
Per quanto piccola questa isola è una delle più belle delle Galapagos vista la particolarità degli animali, in particolare le fregate, che non si possono incontrare in altre isole.
Pare che qui inoltre ci sia la più alta concentrazione di Blue feet boobie, questi animali caratterizzati da zampe blue, tipici dell’arcipelago.

A paradise

Once in Guayaquil (Ecuador) took the flight to Galapagos by Company AEROGAL. In the airport you pass a thorough control, not allowed to bring any food or seeds and plants in order to safeguard the islands of contamination. He told us of the abuses of the past having even to restrict access to the archipelago authorizing only a certain number of visitors per year, it had to apply for entry with good time. It is now established an entry fee of $ 100 that are charged on arrival, this already, along with the $ 350 it costs the flight, is a filter feeder to avoid mass visitors. The going rate for the conservation of the Galapagos National Park, a natural paradise and unique in the world, it must be super protected. All trips must be accompanied by official guides who are specifically trained. Thanks to all attempts consiguir the Islands are preserved and not degraded. The flight time is 1:45 minutes from Guayaquil Airport is located on the island of Baltra and is small, a simple wooden construction. The transfer from the airport to the pier where you take barges for transfer to Santa Cruz Island from the airport is via a shuttle bus. Santa Cruz Island, although not the largest, it is the one with largest population and which houses most services, hotels, travel agencies, tours of the archipelago, etc.. Although you can also access via the Galapagos San Cristobal Island, the most frequented by airlines is the Baltra To transfer from the pier to Puerto Ayora, the capital of Santa Cruz has to take a city bus or While a taxi, they are very abundant. In the move reverses an hour. At Santa Cruz had a nice sense of tranquility, the islanders are very friendly and hospitable, security on the island is full. The two ways to visit the Galapagos are, or have previously arranged a cruise or place you in a hotel in Puerto Ayora. Cruise ships often make hotel and every day on its route visit one or two islands. We chose the option of staying in a hotel in Puerto Ayora and every day visiting an island, it gave us more freedom and we avoided the straitjacket of being on a cruise. The Galapagos Islands consist of 12 major islands, Santa Cruz, Isabela, Fernandina Island, James Island, Bartolome Island, Floreana, San Cristóbal, Genoese Islands, Isla Marchena, Pinta Island, Plazas Island and Isla Santa Fe is almost impossible to visit all unless you spend several weeks. We devote a week and we visited the offering more attractive and be more accessible from Santa Cruz, since to visit the islands of Isabela and Fernandina you have to go back to Baltra road crossing the island. We visited the Plazas Island, James Island, Bartolome Island and Isla Floreana. In this natural paradise in the world animals roam freely, streets and sidewalks filled with iguanas, sea lions, pelicans, lizards, birds even come to say hello. Abound called Darwin's famous finches. It is not allowed tocarl or give food to any animal. Admittedly, the heat is stifling so it has to be well equipped and provided with water by hand. The most important facility of Santa Cruz is the Charles Darwin Research Station, is an international foundation which employs a hundred scientific naturalists and biologists. At the Station Museum is located in an Informative where graph shows the evolution of species, finches, tortoises with their shells different ways, so depending on your progress in each of the different habitat islands. Outside you can see the distinntas species. We were able to greet the "Lonesome George" unique specimen Chelonoides family. Unfortunately Lonesome George died in 2012 without being able to leave offspring. Its shell is shaped like a saddle or formerly "gallop". It was such an abundance of these turtles that Spanish renamed these islands as "tortoises" before Columbus Islands were called. Abroad also include several facilities, incubators, birdhouses, laboratories, etc.. This enclosure within an enclosure that is a formidable botanical garden. The visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station have to spend a whole day. Santa Cruz offers other attractions: the Twins. These are two large craters formed by sinking the floor, Giant Tortoises Reserve El Chato, Lagoon Nymphs, Playa Punta Estrada and especially the Turtle Bay Beach where a colony of marine iguanas, sea lions and sharks. Plazas Islands, the closest to Santa Cruz. These two islands, they highlight the cliffs they inhabit a variety of seabirds. For botany enthusiasts there is an interesting endemic cactus forest. Bartolome Island, entirely volcanic. From the Sullivan Bay is a path formed by wooden walkways that wind their way up to the top from where you can enjoy the spectacular views. The cruise on a catamaran made from Santa Cruz, the ride is spectacular. Floreana Island. At the pier of Playa Prieta have to take a somewhat unconventional transport, a tractor-trailer where seats are enabled, through this transport is moving to the center of the island which is where you will find the most attractive, Asylum of La Paz, where Aborigines lived first inhabitants of the islands. The route is spectacular, lush vegetation, large colonies of turtles released. Seymour, this island is very close to Bartra, where the airport. It is uninhabited and in it you can see a runway used during World War II. Proliferate endemic fur seals Galapagos lava lizards and snakes of the Galapagos. For its abundant marine life is often visited by marine biologists. The Santiago Island, also called San Salvador. Although the entire Galapagos archipelago is of volcanic origin on Santiago Island is the largest exponent. The island is dominated by a large and numerous small conical volcano volcanoes is visited by volcanologists and scholars. The fauna is very rich, as in all the islands, iguanas, sea lions, fur seals also but mostly large colonies of hawks. By registering on this island humidity is very high jungle vegetation.' http://www.rodamons.net'

Un paraiso

Una vez en Guayaquil (Ecuador) cogimos el vuelo hacia Galápagos por la Compañía AEROGAL. En el mismo aeropuerto se pasa un control exhaustivo, no se permite llevar ningún tipo de alimentos o semillas y plantas al objeto de salvaguardar las islas de cualquier contaminación.
Se nos comentó de los abusos de antaño habiendo llegando incluso a restringir el acceso al archipiélago autorizando solo un número determinado de visitantes por año, para ello había que solicitar la entrada con debida antelación.
Actualmente se ha establecido una tasa de entrada de 100 $ que son cobrados a la llegada, ello ya de por sí, junto con los 350 $ que cuesta el vuelo, constituye un filtro dosificador para evitar visitas multitudinarias. La Tasa va destinada a la conservación del Parque Nacional de Las Galápagos, paraíso natural y único en el mundo, por ello debe estar súper protegido. Todas las excursiones tienen que ir acompañadas por guías oficiales que reciben una formación específica. Gracias a todo ello se intenta consiguir que las Islas se conserven y no se degraden.
La duración del vuelo es de 1:45 minutos desde Guayaquil
El aeropuerto está situado en la Isla de Baltra y es pequeño, una sencilla construcción de madera. El traslado del aeropuerto hasta el embarcadero donde se toman unas barcazas para el traslado a la Isla Santa Cruz se hace desde el aeropuerto por medio de unos autobuses lanzadera.
La Isla Santa Cruz, aunque no sea la mayor, sí es la que tiene mayor población y donde se ubican la mayoría de servicios, hoteles, agencias de viaje, excursiones por el archipiélago, etc. Aunque también se puede acceder a Las Galápagos a través de la Isla San Cristóbal, la más frecuentada por las compañías aéreas es la de Baltra
Para el traslado desde el embarcadero hasta Puerto Ayora,la capital de Santa Cruz se tiene que coger un autobús municipal o bien un taxi, éstos son muy abundantes. En el traslado se invierte una hora.
Llegados a Santa Cruz tuvimos una agradable sensación de tranquilidad, los isleños son sumamente agradables y hospitalarios, la seguridad en la Isla es total.
Las dos formas para visitar Galápagos son, o bien tener concertado previamente un crucero o situarte en un hotel en Puerto Ayora. Los cruceros hacen a las veces de hotel y cada día en su recorrido visitan una o dos islas. Nosotros escogimos la opción de quedarnos en un hotel en Puerto Ayora y cada día visitábamos una isla, ello nos daba mayor libertad y evitábamos el encorsetamiento de estar en un crucero.
Las Galápagos están formadas por 12 islas mayores, Santa Cruz, La Isabela, Isla Fernandina, Isla Santiago, Isla Bartolomé, Isla Floreana, San Cristóbal, Islas Genovesas, Isla Marchena, Isla Pinta, Islas Plazas e Isla Santa Fe. Es casi imposible visitarlas todas a menos que se dedique varias semanas. Nosotros le dedicamos una semana y pudimos visitar las que ofrecían un mayor atractivo y ser más accesibles desde Santa Cruz, puesto que para visitar las Islas de La Isabela y Fernandina hay que trasladarse de nuevo a Baltra cruzando por carretera toda la isla.
Pudimos visitar las Isla Plazas, Isla Santiago, Isla Bartolomé e Isla Floreana.
En este paraíso natural único en el mundo los animales campan a sus anchas con entera libertad, calles y aceras repletas de iguanas, leones marinos, pelícanos, lagartos, incluso las aves se acercan a saludar. Abundan los célebres pinzones llamados de Darwin. No está permitido tocarl ni dar comida a ningún animal. Hay que reconocer que el calor es sofocante por lo que se tiene que ir bien equipado y siempre con agua a mano.
La instalación más importante de Santa Cruz es la Estación Científica Charles Darwin, es una fundación internacional en la que trabajan un centenar de científicos naturalistas y biólogos. En la Estación se encuentra el Museo Informativo donde de una manera grafica se muestra la evolución de las especies, pinzones, tortugas con sus distintas formas en sus caparazones, ello dependiendo de su evolución en cada una de las islas con diferente hábitat. En el exterior se pueden observar las distinntas especies. Pudimos saludar al “Solitario George” espécimen único de la familia Chelonoides. Lamentablemente el Solitario George murió en 2012 sin haber podido dejar descendencia. Su caparazón tiene la forma de una silla de montar o antiguamente “galopar”. Era tanta la abundancia de estas tortugas que los españoles rebautizaron estas islas como “galápagos”, antes se las llamaba Islas Colón.
También en el exterior se encuentran varias instalaciones, incubadoras, pajareras, laboratorios, etc. Todo ello cercado dentro de un recinto que constituye un formidable jardín botánico. La visita a la Estación Científica Charles Darwin hay que dedicarle un día entero.

Santa Cruz ofrece también otros atractivos: Los Gemelos. Se trata de dos grandes cráteres formados al hundirse el suelo; Reserva de Tortugas Gigantes El Chato, Laguna de Las Ninfas, Playa Punta Estrada y sobre todo la Playa de Tortuga Bay en donde habita una colonia de iguanas marinas, leones marinos y tiburones.

Islas Plazas, las más cercanas a Santa Cruz. Se trata de dos islas, en ellas destacaría los acantilados en ellos habitan gran variedad de aves marinas. Para los aficionados a la botánica existe un interesante bosque de nopales endémicos.

Isla Bartolomé, completamente volcánica. Desde la Bahía Sullivan hay una sendero formado por pasarelas de madera que suben serpenteando hasta la cima desde donde se pueden contemplar espectaculares vistas. La travesía se hace en un catamarán desde Santa Cruz, el trayecto es espectacular.

Isla Floreana. Al llegar al embarcadero de Playa Prieta hay que coger un transporte un tanto singular, un tractor con remolque donde están habilitados unos asientos, por medio de este transporte se hace el traslado al centro de la isla que es en donde se encuentra el mayor atractivo, el Asilo de La Paz, lugar donde habitaron los aborígenes primeros habitantes de las islas. El recorrido es espectacular, frondosa vegetación, colonias de grandes tortugas en libertad.

Seymour, esta isla está muy cerca de Bartra, donde el aeropuerto. Está deshabitada y en ella se puede ver unas pistas de aterrizaje empleadas durante la Segunda Guerra. Proliferan los osos marinos endémicos de Las Galápagos, lagartijas de lava y serpientes de Galápagos. Por su abundante fauna marina es muy visitadas por biólogos marinos.

La Isla de Santiago, también llamada San Salvador. Aunque todo el Archipiélago de Las Galápagos es de origen volcánico en la Isla Santiago está el mayor exponente. La Isla está presidida por un gran volcán cónico y numerosos pequeños volcanes es muy visitada por vulcanólogos y estudiosos del tema. Su fauna es muy rica, como en todas las islas, iguanas, lobos marinos, también focas peleteras pero sobre todo grandes colonias de halcones. Al registrarse en esta isla una humedad muy elevada su vegetación es selvática. ' http://www.rodamons.net'
