Daphne Island

Daphne Island is a small island located off the coast of Santa Cruz in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. It is part of the Galapagos National Park and is home to a variety of wildlife, including sea lions, marine iguanas, and a variety of birds.

The island is just over half a mile long and is shaped like a crescent moon. It is made up of volcanic rocks and is mostly barren, with only a few patches of vegetation. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and crystal-clear waters, making it a popular spot for snorkeling and diving.

The island was named after the HMS Daphne, a British ship that visited the Galapagos Islands in 1814. It was also the site of a tragic event in the late 1800s when a group of sailors were stranded on the island after their ship was wrecked. The sailors were eventually rescued, but the island has been known as Daphne Island ever since.

In the 20th century, Daphne Island became a popular destination for scientists and tourists alike. In 1959, the island was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in 1985 it was declared a Biosphere Reserve. Today, the island is a popular destination for tourists and researchers alike, who come to observe the island's unique wildlife and stunning landscape.
