Galapagos Islands Explorer Map by Ocean Explorer Maps
This title features: illustrated biographies of explorers and other notable people; historical time line; color photos and text on Galapagos wildlife, and basic information on evolution, endemic species, conservation, and more; information about all the main islands, visitor sites, and most popular dive sites. The Galapagos Islands Explorer also has sections on human history, conservation, National Park Rules, the various island names (Ecuadorian and English), a timeline, and biographies of the significant people in Galapagos history. It will complement a trip to the islands, and help you make the most of your time there. Mapping has come a long way since the islands first appeared on Gerardus Mercators map in 1569, and the Galapagos Islands Explorer is the perfect companion for a visit to the archipelago. As well as the map itself, the Explorer gives a general introduction to the geology, climate, and geography of the islands, plus background background information on the flora and fauna you can expect to see - from Galapagos cotton to the famous iguanas and giant tortoises. There is concise and practical information on each of the main islands as well as the most popular dive sites.
