Artist's notes:

Animals of the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are a Mecca for environmentalists, naturalist and animal lovers. While I have never been, the animals that live there - and the obvious importance they had to Darwin in the development of his theory of evolution - have always figured very prominently in my mind. One of the first color drawings I completed was that of the unique Marine Iguana. Since then, I've added many more animals endemic to the islands - often without realizing they could be found there. At this time, I will likely add he Galapagos Penguin and Fur Seal to the gallery, and perhaps too one of the land iguanas. If you have an animal native to the Galapagos Islands you'd like to see added to this gallery please send me an .

Information about Galapagos Animals:

The variety and environmental specializations of the many animals of the Galapagos Islands is legendary. The extreme remoteness of the islands from any large land mass has resulted in such clear examples of adaptation that it can be hard to believe that evolution took as long as it did to gain widespread acceptance. The famous landmark is an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed around the equator in the Pacific Ocean, about 500 miles (970 kilometers) west of continental Ecuador. Nearly the entire area is encompassed by Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. There are about 25,000 people who reside there and the language of the islands is Spanish. It total there are 14 large islands (with an area larger than one square kilometer) many with life forms endemic only to that particular island. They are notable for their many unique animals, included sea-going reptiles like the Marine Iguana, and the flightless cormorant. The reefs around the islands teem with life as well, with hundreds of species of fish and several different marine mammals, including the Galapagos Fur Seal. One of the most famous residents of the islands is "Lonesome George" - a Pinta tortoise that has lived alone for decades. He has since been move from the Pinta island to the Charles Darwin Research Center.
