There are 21 volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands that emerge from the ocean and form the Archipelago. Of these, 13 volcanoes are active! Ever since Charles Darwin showed up here in 1835, there have been over 60 recorded eruptions on 6 of the volcanoes. Many people are fascinated by how such a delicate ecosystem - complete with its own micro climate - exists in such a volatile place! Historically, the critically endangered wildlife of the Galapagos has always been on the brink of destruction.
