ON Monday, after 33 years of being dormant, Wolf volcano in the Galapagos Islands woke up from its long sleep with eruptions of lava, fire and smoke.
Wolf volcano is the highest peak in the Galapagos Islands and it is located on Isabela island. Inhabitants of the island have been assured that the eruption poses no threat to them.
Known for housing the world’s only population of pink iguanas, authorities have been quick to reassure that they are not in any immediate danger.
The variety of wildlife on the island famously inspired English geologist and naturalist Charles Darwin to write the theory of evolution.
“One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die,” he wrote in On the Origin of Species after visiting the islands.
