A Seal sleep on the beach at San Cristobal

A seal sleeps in his bed with the backdrop of San Cristobal. My visit to study the wildlife of the Galapagos surprised me as to how careful and pristine the system is and how beautifully the people of these islands have blended into nature with. They all live as one and respect each other. How I wish the world takes a lesson in conservation and co-habitation with nature.
