Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands played a pivotal role in the development of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, as he studied the unique wildlife on the islands and how they adapted to their isolated environments. The animals on the islands evolved in unique ways, with each island developing its own distinct species over time. This has made the Galapagos a prime location for studying evolution and natural selection. The conservation efforts in the Galapagos aim to protect this diversity and preserve the islands as a living laboratory for the study of evolution.
