Introduction

Ancient seafarers called them the Enchanted Isles, recognising their unique landscape and extraordinary fauna, but it was Charles Darwin who drew The Galapagos Islands to the world’s attention. By observing the fascinating adaptations made in the birds and reptiles on these predator-free islands, Darwin formulated his theory of evolution. Their natural history is outstanding; 28 bird species occur nowhere else in the world. There are giant tortoises, prehistoric-looking Land and Marine Iguanas, colourful crabs and even a Galápagos Snake. Most appealing of all is the tame and obliging nature of this extraordinary wildlife; it is a photographer’s paradise — a telephoto lens is usually unnecessary.
