Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Saturday, February 12, 2005

Daphne Major lies north of Santa Cruz and west of Baltra. Visits to the island is highly controlled. 2 Professors (Grants) from Princeton did research on this island to validate Darwin's theories. They tagged and tracked over 25,000 finches over the 20+ years. It is worth reading the Pulitzer price winning book "The Beak of the Finch" describing the research.
This picture was taken while going from Baltra to Isla Bartolome on 12/23.
