The Galápagos Islands

The Galápagos IslandsAn exploration of the Galápagos Islands to see at very close hand the many animal species which inhabit them, some unique in the world. 58 minutes.

A voyage in a small ship visits the strange volcanic landscapes of these isolated islands, almost 1000 kilometers from the coast of Ecuador. The animals simply ignore human visitors, who can swim with sea lions and study the famous gigantic Galapagos tortoises. Marine iguanas, the only type which swims, display brilliant colours. There are also land iguanas, lava lizards, startling red Sally Lightfoot crabs, rays, and a bewildering swarm of exotic birdlife including blue-footed boobies, hooded mockingbirds, flamingos, Galapagos hawks, waved albatrosses and three species of Darwin's famous finches.
