Las islas Galápagos |Su fama e importancia reside en la enorme diversidad, tanto en su fauna como en su flora, de especies endémicas, las cuales llevaron a Charles Darwin a desarrollar su famosa Teoría de la Evolución a través del estudio y la observación de este complejo ecosistema. Las primeras formaciones de tierra de este conjunto están datadas en más de cinco millones de años de antigüedad como resultado de su origen volcánico, aún con importantes erupciones como la del 2009.
