Birds of the Galápagos Islands

€ 4.49 *

The Galapagos Islands form a National Park of Ecuador and are of course a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ever since Charles Darwin realized that an indication of evolution as a driving force at the origin of species could be found here, the Galapagos Islands are anchored in the consciousness of nature lovers. The bizarre landscapes, the fascinating flora and fauna and their dramatic threat by human influence in past and present make the islands a unique destination. The islands are a prime example of endemism, so BirdLife International has recognized the islands as a Primary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-P). The most impressive experience is that these extraordinary animals have a very low fear of humans.

The Galápagos Islands are located in the Pacific Ocean. Legally the Galápagos Islands belong to Ecuador. Because of the number of bird species with restricted range occurring in this area, BirdLife International assigned it a Primary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-P).
