Ñan 10 | Galápagos: Western Islands

The great geological dance

The Galápagos appeared from out of nowhere, disconnected from all other landmasses. A ‘hotspot‘ explains the existence of the entire archipelago. And by hotspot, scientists mean, quite simply, an enormous umbilical cord connected to Earth‘s blazing core: the Galápagos are not only directly linked to our planet‘s beating heart, they are the result of its pulse. And they are alive.

 

The extraordinary existence of the extraordinary life-forms that exist on these islands is born where the geological dance of Earth and Fire begins.
