Thru the Lens: Galapagos Wildlife

Not long after stepping off the plane, it’s easy to spot wildlife everywhere. While waiting for the ferry from Baltra (where the main airport is located) to Santa Cruz, I saw a massive pelican and a few sea lions. And over the course of a week, we encountered just about every kind of land, air, and sea animal that the Galapagos has to offer. And the best part? They’re completely fearless of humans and sometimes will come right up to you out of curiosity. In many ways, the Galapagos is the best natural zoo in the world!
