Day Seventeen: The Galápagos Islands

Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app.

Day seventeen is The Galápagos Islands!

-------------

“The Galápagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean, 926 km (575 mi) west of continental Ecuador, of which they are a part.

The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species and were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.

North Seymour Island is home to a large population of blue-footed boobies and swallow-tailed gulls.”
