Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This documentary transports the viewer to the unique world of the Galapagos Islands. Tui De Roy, a wildlife photographer and lifelong inhabitant of the Galapagos, leads the tour of the islands' many wonders. There are close-up looks at the diverse species that live in isolation on the islands located hundreds of miles off the coast of Ecuador. "Galapagos" is the Spanish name for tortoise, and the island is famous for its giant, gentle land tortoises. The turtles are seen in their native habitat, along with the flightless cormorant, the marine iguana, blue footed boobies, and Darwin's finches.
