Last year my fiancé and I spent 3 months volunteering for the Charles Darwin Foundation (CDF) in the Galapagos Islands. It was an unforgettable experience in a beautiful and unique place.
I was working with Luis, a Conservation Biologist employed by the CDF and the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, studying the critically endangered Floreana Mockingbird, known locally as Cucuve de Floreana.
This charismatic little bird is historically and scientifically important as it was the species that inspired Charles Darwin to develop the Theory of Natural Selection.
It has been extirpated from its original home on Floreana Island for over 100 years and survives only in small numbers on 2 small satellite islands Champion and Gardner. There is a project underway to study the species in the hope of establishing a third population on Floreana island.

For more details become friends with Chirpy Cucuve on Facebook
