We had a short journey last night and most of us appreciate it . The seas have been very rough for most of our trip.

Today we go to the Charles Darwin Research Station. The Charles Darwin Research Station conducts research for Galapagos conservation, focusing in two major areas:
1. terrestrial conservation, the main issue is management of invasive species and how to restore the native biodiversity and ecosystems.
2,Marine Conservation.The challenge to marine conservation is overexploitation.

Visitors learn about natural history, issues concerning the islands, and see the Tortoise breeding and rearing project at work.
We visit three breeding corals and see the successful project has had to date.
