The Galapagos Islands is home to more than 40 endemic bird species, and along with its other amazing wildlife, is a dream destination for birders. Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to restrict travel (though Ecuador has resumed some tourist travel, subject to proper precautions), many birders aren’t able to visit. Furthermore, the difficulties of planning a South American trip to an isolated and heavily protected region, not to mention the cost, can make birding in the Galapagos an extreme challenge. But you don’t have to leave your home to enjoy the birds of these marvelous islands – it’s time for a Galapagos giveaway!
The Book to Win
Galapagos Birds: A Photographic Voyage is a peaceful, relaxing walk through a day in these amazing islands, without needing to leave your home or even your favorite chair. Featuring more than 50 photos and simple text to share the story of the birds’ activities, this book is a gentle look at birdlife in the Galapagos, providing a virtual visit that you can enjoy over and over, without the need for convoluted travel plans, an extensive budget, or health testing.
