Wildlife, geology and evolution
An entire section on the Galapagos Islands, featuring maps, videos, models and a 70″ touchtable where visitors can learn about the wildlife and see what Darwin saw that led him to the theory of natural selection.
The Galapagos played a key role in Darwin’s thinking, especially the tortoises and finches which varied island to island. It was after visiting the Galapagos Islands that he wrote, “If there is the slightest foundation for these remarks, the Zoology of Archipelagos will be well worth examining; for such facts would undermine the stability of species.”
The Galapagos Table features videos, maps, images, audio files, quizzes and more. A great way to learn about the islands and why they had such an impact on Darwin.
