THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! The trip was outstanding; all the arrangements were perfect – from the time we were met at the airport in Quito – to the time we were returned to the airport in Guayaquil.
Alan and I had a truly wonderful experience in Ecuador. Santiago and the rest of staff were excellent hosts, as was the La Pinta and its staff. We had an amazing trip.

New Blue-Footed Booby Colony Found in Galapagos

Blue-footed Boobies are, without a doubt, one of the trademark species of the Galapagos Islands. Now that a new colony of this unique bird species has been discovered on the islands, we have another reason to visit the Galapagos Islands.

This new colony of Blue-footed Boobies is located near the beach of La Millonaria and the Galapagos National Park is currently studying them to determine their age. The first results of the investigations have made it clear that there are more than 362 new birds and the majority of them are adults.

Traditionally, Blue-footed Boobies inhabit the islands of Española, Fernandina, Floreana, Genovesa, Isabela, Pinzón, and from now on, they can be found on Baltra Island as well. A couple of years ago, the local conservation authorities started a program to help restore the population of Blue-footed Boobies on   Baltra Island and part of this  process was to remove the cats and goats that were on the island. Now the boobies can live there without the risks posed to them and their offspring by the cats and goats.

So if you were waiting for another reason to the visit the Galapagos Islands, we can now say the playful Blue-footed Boobies are waiting for tourists from all over the world to visit them in their new home on Baltra Island.
