Welcome to Isla Isabela (Albemarle)
It’s a relatively young island and consists of a chain of five intermittently active volcanoes, including Volcán Sierra Negra, which erupted in late 2005 and sent up a 20km-high smoke column. One of the island’s volcanoes, Volcán Wolf, is the highest point in the Galápagos at 1707m (some sources claim 1646m). There's also a small, older volcano, Volcán Ecuador (610m).
In response to an ecosystem-wide threat and a dwindling tortoise population on Isabela and especially around Volcán Alcedo (1097m), the Charles Darwin Research Station and Galápagos National Park Service successfully eradicated tens of thousands of feral goats through ground and aerial hunting.
