Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin came to the Galápagos in 1831. “He was the first to make a scientific study of the islands. He was a young student just out of university and was the naturalist on a round-the-world scientific and geographical voyage on board the HMS Beagle (1831 - 1836). Darwin reached the Galápagos on September 13, 1835 and spent about five weeks, until October 30, studying the geology and biology on four of the thirteen islands. It was here that he began to develop his theories of evolution.”
