Being back home has given me the chance to go through some of my old photos. Uncovered this gem from the Galápagos Islands 2 years ago. This marine iguana must be looking for what's at the end of a rainbow.
View of the coast of Espanola Island. I would love to go back some day. Every island of the Galápagos Islands is so unique and still well preserved. I certainly hope it stays that way. One of the last natural paradises.
🇺🇸"I lived on a boat for 4 nights. I booked it last minute, 30 minutes before the boat took off and got it for quite a cheap price! During the days on the boat we visited many of the islands and got to see sooo much cool stuff. Both tours on land and underwater. So booking everything there, last minute, is usually cheaper and easier than doing it in advance" Thank you very much @hannabei for sharing this experience with us, so guys if you wanna get more tips about how to travel in Ecuador just contact her. 🇨🇴"Vivi en un barco por 4 noches, lo reserve a último momento, 30 minutos antes de que arrancara y lo conseguí por un buen precio. Durante el recorrido visitamos varias islas y vimos cosas alucinantes, participamos en tours acústicos y algunos en tierra también. Entonces reservar los tours allá a último minuto es usualmente más fácil y económico que hacerlo con anticipación" Muchas gracias @hannabei por compartir esta experiencia con nosotros, entonces chicos ya saben si quieren saber más tips de como viajar en Ecuador no duden en contactarla. 🇧🇷 " Eu more em um barco para 4 noites. Reservei ele última hora, 30 minutos antes de que o barco fuera embora por um preço muito legal! Durante os dias no barco, visitamos muitas das ilhas e conseguimos ver coisas muito legais. Ambos os passeios em terra e subaquática. Portanto, reservar tudo lá, no último minuto, é geralmente mais barato e mais fácil do que fazê-lo com antecedência" Muito obrigado pela sua experiência @hannabei Então rapazes se você quiser saber mais dicas sobre como viajar no Equador só fale com ela #ilha#island#galapagos#galapagosislands#equador#ecuador#suramerica#southamerica#foreign#perfectbody#gothere#goandeat#goandtravel#backpack#backpacking#backpackers#takeyourbp#takeyourbpcommunity#trip#travel#travelers#travelcheap#roadtrip#amazing#awesomepic
“Peter, have you ever heard of two newly-found #species of colorful songbird in the #Galapagos Islands. They’re previously two subspecies of #Vermillion#Flycatchers before the #scientists elevated their status to full species status after they analyzed the #molecular data from #samples of #museum#specimens preserved over 100 years ago. Why? They needed to examine the complex #evolutionary#history of those #birds by using advanced #genetic techniques requiring the living #tissue , which were not available, unless they use those specimens. One of them, the characteristically smaller #SanCristobal Island Vermillion Flycatcher, hasnt been since 1987. It’s considered to be the first #modern#extinction of a Galapagos bird species. You know, a species of bird that may be extinct in the Galapagos is a big deal. It marks an important landmark for #conservation in the Galapagos, and a call to understand why these birds have declined. Vermilion Flycatchers exhibit a complex evolutionary history having branched from an ancestral population into twelve recognized subspecies with ranges that span across the Americas and the Galápagos Islands. This study compares their evolutionary history against the way scientific authorities currently classify the species (and subspecies) to look for any inconsistencies. Two subspecies of the Vermilion Flycatcher, both found only in the Galápagos, were determined to be, in fact, so genetically distinct: Pyrocephalus nanus (throughout most of the Galápagos) and Pyrocephalus dubius (only on the island of San Cristóbal). The latter—significantly smaller and subtly different in color from the other species—is the one already extinct. Wouldn’t it be great if it wasn’t extinct? No one is looking, I’m pretty sure of that," said Claire.
