The Galapagos, a range of volcanic islands to the west of Ecuador, form that country's best- known national park. This guide to the wildlife of these extraordinary islands has a lively text and is illustrated throughout with superb full-color photographs of the flora and fauna. Island walks are described in detail, with accompanying full-color maps, while background information features the discoveries of Charles Darwin, the evolution of the island's wildlife, island zones and conservation. The islands are accessible only by authorized groups aboard cruise ships and smaller boats. This is the ideal guide for those wishing to plan and prepare for this unique natural history experience or wanting a memento after their visit.
