Galapagos Islands

To set foot on the Galapagos Islands for the first time is overwhelming. Looking into the eyes of a Giant Tortoise, wondering how many generations of human beings have ever looked into those same eyes. Sharing the space at the fish market (or a bench in the square) with sea lions and pelicans. Dodging crimson Sally lightfoot crabs and marine iguanas while walking along volcanic rocks by the sea. But how long will this place, once a haven for wildlife, remain this way? At this very moment the warming surface of the ocean is affecting the entire dynamics of species and resources distribution, the beaches are getting full of plastic, and hundreds of fishing vessels wait on the margins of the protected areas for migratory species to leave this safe zone and fall into their nets.
