The Tripbase Awards 2011


This is the award category for best Galapagos blogs. After lengthy research and debate, the Tripbase team have given the awards to the following blogs for their brilliance, attractiveness and ease of use, despite the fact that the Galapagos Islands' beauty speaks for itself in volumes.

Darwin was so impressed with the flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands that they inspired him to publish his thoughts on natural selection, which has essentially laid the foundations for the way we think about science. The answer to a lot of life's biggest questions lay on these islands and in the surrounding sea.

You no longer need to sail to the archipelago on HMS Beagle, however. It isn't difficult for tourists to follow in the footsteps of the man himself. Discover for yourself the breadth of unique wildlife and the effect that isolation has on it - from the humble and peculiar sea cucumber to the majestic giant tortoise, there's an animal for everybody on these strange landforms.

These tiny islands have no native demographics and a very tiny population. It is therefore a matter of grave concern that the human effects on the islands are kept to a minimum. The animals on the island already suffer from the effects of humankind.

We've been very careful in the blogs we have chosen for this award, giving preference to those sensitive to the Galapagos Islands' inherently unique ecosystems and the importance of keeping tourism sustainable, interesting, comfortable and environmentally friendly.
