Everyone who visits the Galapagos Islands is amazed by the diverse wildlife, from those lazy
sea lions to the giant tortoises, the blue-footed boobies to the curious penguins. The strict ecological protection of the area has meant that travelers who visit get a rare opportunity to see animals unafraid of human proximity.
“That means that even your 6-year-old can snap a photo of a passing whale, and your 10-year-old can swim above a school of sharks,” says Heather Greenwood Davis, a travel journalist and founder of GlobetrottingMama.com.
