In the wake of Hurricane Katrina's devastaion of New Orleans, I went to do animal rescue. This image was taken inside a house where over 50 animals were found dead. We rescued those we could, but it was too late for many.
The clashes between the Endemic species of animals in the Galapagos and the people who both live and travel there, are constant and occasionally comical. In this image a land iguana crosses the road near the airport as the Aerogal bus loads up with folks excited for a holiday.

In 2006 I found a great spot to spy on the antics of a dog named Osa, and her favorite sealion, in the town of Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, Galapaogs, Ecuador. Osa spends her mornings guarding the newly landed fish from the hungry sea lion. Eventually she gets bored and the fishermen feed the sealion. This photo has a bit of everything that is Galapagos to me. Endemic species, Wildlife, Fishermen, Fish and Pets, all in a jumble in one photo.
