Galapagos Wildlife Photo Gallery
Galapagos wildlife photos show how close photographers can get to these fearless animals.  The islands are home to many unique animals in a fragile ecosystem.  Many of the species here are endemic to the Galapagos Islands or even to just one of the islands.  Conservation of these delicate habitats is vital for the survival of the beautiful Galapagos flora and fauna.  
The incredible wildlife photos below of the unique Galapagos fauna in this very special ecosystem were taken by wildlife photographer Roz Gordon in June 2007.

The wildlife in the Galapagos Islands was key to Charles Darwin formulating his famous theory of evolution.

The Galapagos tortoises are the largest in the world and the Galapagos Islands take their name from them.  These giant tortoises are perhaps the most famous of the Galapagos wildlife.

CRACYP would like to thank Roz Gordon for giving us the right to use these stunning photographs of the Galapagos wildlife and also other images from her visit to Ecuador.  You will see more of her Ecuador photos around this website.  Please remember that all images here are copyright and may not be used without the express, written permission of CRACYP.
Galapagos Blue-footed Booby
The blue-footed booby is found on most of the Galapagos Islands.
The Galapagos wildlife photos down the righthand side of this page were taken on the island of San Cristobal (also known as Chatham Island) by a tourist with a fairly ordinary camera and not much experience of photography.  They give an idea of what you might see and just how close you can get to these animals and birds who really are not scared of humans. The Galapagos Islands are a paradise for birdwatchers and a great place for photography.  Time, patience and perhaps a specialist photo tour to the Galapagos really can produce incredible wildlife photos from this very special place.
Volunteer in the Galapagos Islands!  CRACYP has a Galapagos conservation project, Galapagos Organic Rescue to help protect the delicate ecosystems and rare wildlife of the Galapagos Islands.
