Close Wildlife Encounter in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
The Galapagos Islands truly are one-of-a-kind. Where else in the world can humans interact with wildlife on their home turf and not have them run away in fear?
Case in point – this curious young sea lion wasn’t afraid of the bright lights and fame, he was actually posing for the camera!
Located in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are a remote archipelago of volcanic islands that are famed for their large number of endemic species. It’s unique ecosystem and scientific significance (it was here that Charles Darwin discovered his theory of evolution) have made the Galapagos Islands a treasured UNESCO World Heritage Site.
