Desert Speaks

Gateway To The Galapagos

Season 15, Episode 4 of 13

The Desert Speaks begins its journey to the Galapagos Islands with a visit to Ecuador, which is to the islands as the United States is to Hawaii. After visiting a market on the mainland and a village with a monument to the equator, it's off to the islands of Bartolome and Genovese to explore their volcanic origins and get an up-close and personal look at the native wildlife. Some of the featured animals include several species of Boobies, waved Albatross, marine iguanas, Galapagos Hawks and the Magnificent frigate birds. A special treat for desert dwellers is the island version of the Prickly Pear Cactus, only this version has soft, "pettable" spines.
