Volcano erupts on Galapagos Islands after more than three decades
May 27 , 2015
Isabela Island’s Wolf volcano, which is part of the famous Galapagos Islands, has erupted for the first time in more than three decades, spewing smoke, fire and lava.
The eruption does not pose a threat to the island’s people, but experts are worried that the ecosystem, which is believed to have been an inspiration behind Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, may be threatened.
According to officials of the Galapagos National park, the lava flow is in a south-westerly direction.
