Colon Archipelago - Galapagos (Ecuador)

Colon Archipelago - Galapagos (Ecuador)

The whole archipelago is of volcanic origin and has never been united to any continental mass. It is 600 miles from the coasts of Ecuador and is crossed by the Equatorial Line. The natural beauty of the islands, the diversity and uniqueness of the species, the volcanic origin, the geological dynamics with permanent changes and variety of formations; the rle as a living laboratory of evolutionary processes still underway, in addition to hosting a large number of animal and plant species that do not exist anywhere else in the world, make Galapagos a very unique place of global importance to the common heritage of humanity.
