The Galapagos Islands were the source inspiration and field study for British explorer and scientist Charles Darwin. It was while comparing and studying little birds called finches that Darwin noticed differences in their bill structure and feeding habits. These subtle differences were compared to finches on mainland South America. Darwin concluded that birds and animals evolve over time to adapt to changing habitats. Evolution was the key to survival and thus Darwin’s controversial Origin of the Species idea was put into print.
