The Galápagos Islands will forever be associated with Charles Darwin and his renowned book, The Voyage of the Beagle. The islands remain much as they were when Darwin visited although various animals, which were later introduced by man, are threatening some indigenous species. One mystery which puzzled Darwin, the unusually dry and moderate climate, has been solved by science. It is now known that the Peru, or Humboldt Current, carries large volumes of cold water north from the Antarctic region which washes the equatorial coast of South America with cool water.
