Galapagos Blue Footed Boobies are one of the major attractions.

Galapagos Flamingos are also present in the Galapagos Islands.

Galapagos Birds are a major attraction in the Islands. Because of their isolation from humans, the birds, land and sea animals remain fearless and unaffected by visitors, this is why it is easy to approach them and take beautiful pictures.
