Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are part of Equador, which is located in South America. They are made up of 13 main volcanic islands, and 6 smaller islands. The weather in the Galapagos Islands is always warm since it is located on the equator. In 1535, Tomas Berlanga discovered the islands on accident. By 1892, the official name for these islands became Archipiélago de Colón in honor of Christopher Columbus. Charles Darwin studied the animals on the islands and discovered evolution. crlogan

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are located to the left of Ecuador. December 1831 Darwin set sail from England aboard the HMS Beagle. During the time Darwin studied the plants, animals, landforms, and fossils of the many countries and islands he visited during the five-year voyage. In 1835, the beagle traveled west from the coast of South America, arriving off the coast of San Cristobal Islands on September 17. The beagle explored the Galapagos Islands for five weeks, from September 17 through October 20, 1835. Darwin also observed the animals in the Galapagos, finding species of birds, lizards, and tortoises unique to each island. jbshirley

Galapagos Islands


The Galapagos Islands are located off the west coast of Ecuador. The islands are a chain of volcanic islands. Here you will find blowholes, and many types of wildlife. On the islands you will find many types of turtles, and iguanas. In the 1830s Charles Darwin set sail aboard the HMS Beagle to these wonderful islands. Here he developed his theory of evolution. He believes that evolution occurs through natural selection. The Galapagos Islands are a wonderful place to visit and interesting to learn about. tbhenn

The Galapagos Islands are to the west of Ecuador. In the 1830’s Charles Darwin and his ship The Beagle. He noted the similarities and differences of Flora and Fauna. The official name of the Galapagos is Archipielago de Colon. It’s population is 12,000 recorded in 1990. Santa Cruz is the most populated with 4000. It has very interesting animals at the Galapagos. The most amazing is the giant sea tortoises. dldye

The Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Islands are located about 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. They are made up of 13 main islands, 6 smaller islands, and many other rocks. The oldest of the islands is about 4 million years old and the youngest is still in the process of being formed. It is believed that Fray Tomas de Berlanga discovered the islands in 1535 when he was thrown off of his course while sailing to Peru. Charles Darwin was one of the first scientists to explore the Galapagos. He discovered their many unique types of wildlife and developed his theory of evolution on his trip. rssalter


The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are southwestern from South America. They are located (0 degrees latitude and 90 degrees west longitude.) They are very beautiful and have many rainforest and many different animals. The Galapagos are made up of 13 major islands. They were made from hardened molten lava. Some of the volcanoes are still active today.

THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
The Galapagos Islands are located in the western part of Ecuador. Charles Darwin sailed from England aboard the HMS Beagle. He came up with the theory of evolution because of the Galapagos Islands. It is 2,500 miles from Haleyville. The Galapagos Islands was Volcanoes. The Galapagos Islands had blowholes. Blowholes are a cavity formed in ground at the inland end of sea cave. When water enters mouth of the cave they will be funneled up towards the blowhole. tobbatchelor



THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

The Galapagos Islands are located to the left of Ecuador, off the coast of South America. This island chain consists of 16 large islands and many smaller islands. Geologists have predicted that the islands formed over 5 to 10 million years ago. The islands are made of underwater volcanoes. In 1835, after a five-year voyage, Charles Darwin landed on the Galapagos Islands. Soon afterward he would construct the theory of Evolution. kcbales

The Galapagos Islands


The Galapagos archipelago is part of Ecuador, a country in northwestern South America.
The islands are distributed around the equator, 965 kilometers (about 600 miles) west of Ecuador (recently found to have 3 volcanoes in the center island, all of them active) (0 N 91 W). Charles Darwin fames them for their vast numbers of endemic species and the studies led to his theory of evolution by natural selection.wtmarshall

Galapagos Islands

Around 5 to 10 million years ago many underwater volcanoes arose from the depths of the sea off the west coast of South America to form the Galapagos Islands. Years later, in 1835, Charles Darwin sailed from England for five years to discover an island chain of 16 large island known as the Galapagos. Darwin’s ship that brought him to the islands was called the HMS Beagle. In 1859,while he positioned on the Galapagos he studied different species and later wrote “The Origin of Species” which stated that all species evolve over time. 100 years later the anniversary of Darwin’s piece was recognized in Ecuador, South America. The Galapagos became the first national park of Ecuador.jlsherrill

Galapagos Islands
There are thirteen islands that are a part of the Galapagos. The total land area is 7882 square kilometers. Its size is 430 kilometers long. The population is about 12500 People. The oceans currents determine the Galapagos’s temperature. Charles Darwin set out on a trip to the Galapagos in 1831. He later formed his theory of evolution from the extraordinary animals on the Galapagos.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are islands off the west coast of South America. The Galapagos are apart of the country Ecuador. From The Galapagos are approximately 2,500 miles from Haleyville Alabama. They are made up of 13 volcanic islands. Charles Darwin was the man who discovered these islands he sailed there on his boat, The HMS Beagle. In 1831 he left England to travel around the world and it took him 5 years to succeed. The islands have many different species of iguanas and you are not allowed to touch these creatures. dwwhiteside

Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Islands are off the west coast of Ecuador in South America. The Galapagos consists of 13 main volcanic islands, 6 smaller islands, and 107 islets. An islet is a small, rocky island that is uninhabited and has no vegetation. The islands were formed from volcanoes around 5 to 10 million years ago. The islands have many blowholes. Blowholes are funnels at the end of sea caves in which water is shot out onto the main lands. When Charles Darwin visited the islands, he came up with evolution because of the advanced wildlife living on the island. btedford


Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos is on the left of the Ecuador and off the coast of South America. This Island consists of 16 large islands and several small islands. The island was formed by underground volcanoes. This island was also the first national park in Ecuador. Darwin explored the island for 5 months from September 17 through October 20, 1835. Darwin ship that brought him to the island of Galapagos was called HMS Beagle.

Galapagos Islands
The Galapagos Islands are located in Ecuador. Charles Darwin sailed to the islands on the HMS Beagle. He was the first person to make a scientific study on the islands. After returning from the islands he came up with the theory of evolution. The Galapagos are made up of 13 major volcanic islands. The interesting thing about the islands is that there are so many different types of wild life living on the islands. The tortoises and iguanas are of the most difference. The tortoises and iguanas are so unusual on each island that they couldn’t survive on any of the other islands. The oldest of the islands are about 4 million years old and there are still some forming.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are one of the most unique set of islands. The islands lie in the Pacific Ocean about 1,000 km from the South American coast and straddling the Equator. Charles’s Darwin discovered the Galapagos Islands in 1835. These islands have some of the most unique and unusual animals that you will ever see. There are 13 large islands, 6 smaller ones and 107 islets and rocks, with a total land area of about 8,000 square kilometers. The very first island is thought to have formed between 5 and 10 years ago. The youngest is Isabela and Fernandina. Charles Darwin that led to his theory of evolution fames them for their vast of endemic species and the studies.

Galapagos Islands

Hey, did you know that the Galapagos Islands are made up of 13 main volcanic Islands, six smaller islands and 107 rocks and islets (which is island the size of a huge rock.). The Galápagos archipelago is part of Ecuador. The islands are distributed around the equator, 965 kilometres (about 600 miles) west of Ecuador (recently found to have 3 volcanos in the center island, all of them active) (0° N 91° W). Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835. The youngest islands are Isabela and Fernandina. The very first island was thought to have been formed between 5 and 10 million years ago, as a result of tectonic activity. dwhopson

The Galapagos Island is located west of the equator. Galapagos Islands are approximately 2,500 miles away from Haleyville, Alabama. There are thirteen islands that are a part of the Galapagos. The Galapagos Islands are volcanic islands they are made up from hardened lava over the years. Charles Darwin sailed from England aboard the HMS Beagle. He came up with the theory of evolution because of the Galapagos Islands. sebenefield

The Galapagos Archipelago is a cluster of some 13 volcanic islands and associated islets and rocks located just under the equator, about 600 miles west of Ecuador in South America. The oldest of the islands are about 4 million years old and the youngest are still in the process of being formed. Indeed, the Galapagos islands are considered to be one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. Charles Darwin was the first to make a scientific study of the islands in 1835. He was a young student just out of university and was the naturalist on a round-the-world scientific and geographical voyage on board HMS Beagle (1831 - 1836). Today the Galapagos are owned by Ecuador and are maintained as part of that nation's national park system. He had spent the previous four years exploring the geology and wild-life of South America. In later life, Darwin maintained that the Galapagos were the source of all his ideas and research and, of all the visitors there, the Galapagos are today most closely associated with Darwin. rcforester
