Why I’m Traveling To Ecuador (Part 4)

The Galapagos Islands:

The Galapagos were born from volcanoes erupting violently out of the sea. Plant and animal species traversed 1000km of ocean to colonize the islands, leaving species isolated and evolving independently on different islands. Observing this had a resounding impact on the formations of Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection and the theory of evolution by natural selection.

Even though the Galapagos is on the Equator and is on the sea level, the climate on the Galapagos is not tropical. The Galapagos Geology makes the major islands have their own climate change, for example in Santa Cruz Island on the sea level it can be hot and sunny, and on the highlands can be cold and windy.
