The Galapagos Islands of Ecuador is a collection of distributed volcanic islands, that is famous for it’s natural wildlife. The Islands have grown however by 40-folds over 50 years in population to reach 40,000. Still, this is one of the few magnificent places still left on this planet, where you can examine the wildlife and nature away from civilization. These islands have been one of the major locations Charles Darwin visited in his 5 year journey, and it has also been featured in the Master and Commander movie as an island of nature.
