Darwin Research Station

A few shots from The Darwin Research Station in Puerto Ayora.

Unfortunately, we visited on a Sunday and none of the buildings housing the exhibits were open.

Tortoise II

More Galapagos Tortoise photos.

These photos were made at Rancho El Manzanillo on Santa Cruz Island. This is a “farm/preserve” where these lovely animals are free to roam the property and visitors can see them up close. I worked hard resisting the urge to say, “E.T. Call Home!” No touching, riding or sudden moves are the basic rules. This is their home.
