If you could have full access to one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world for a day, where would you start exploring? If you paid any attention in biology class, your best bet is probably the Galapagos Islands, correct? Well, you can now take a virtual tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the shoes of Charles Darwin straight from your desk, thanks to Google Maps' latest addition to its expansive Street View database. To celebrate this update, Google has launched the website Darwin for a Day where people can collaborate to investigate and document the islands' vast range of native plant and animal life, the findings from which will be passed on to iNaturalist and the Charles Darwin Foundation for further research.
