Daphne Major is made of a tuff crater, it doesn’t have any trees on its surface and its coastline elevates 120 meters from the sea level. It is right at the north of Santa Cruz’s main island. It’s one of the most famous Galapagos Islands due to the fact that a couple of scientists of Princeton University (The Grants) have been going to the island for 30 years now to study the birds, especially the boobies. As a result, they have been able to observe evolutionary processes. This gained them and the location world wide recognition.
