This video is called La Cumbre Volcano Erupts, April 2009, Galapagos Islands.
From the New Zealand Herald:
Galapagos Island volcano erupts, threatens wildlife
11:39AM Sunday Apr 12, 2009
The park says in a statement the eruption is not a threat to people living on nearby Isabela Island.
The Galapagos are home to unique animal and plant species that became the basis for Charles Darwin‘s theory of evolution.
Scientists say Fernandina is the island with the most volcanic activity in the archipelago. La Cumbre last erupted in May 2005.
Associated Press have a comical error in this item. There are no “wolves” on the Galapagos. The Spanish word “lobos” can mean both wolves and sea lions. There are Galapagos sea lions along the coast of Fernandina.
A new analysis from a team of American researchers has found the volcanic plume that created the Galapagos Islands isn’t where models have projected it. The study team said their findings could also explain volcanic activity around the islands. Read more here. See also here.
A mosquito that has lived on the Galapagos Islands for thousands of years is emerging as a potential threat to the archipelago’s wildlife, because of an increase in tourism: here.
