Today is #worldturtleday, and we're celebrating the Galapagos green sea turtle in its honor! Sea turtle hatchlings like this make a mad dash from their nest to the ocean, and many can't evade predators like hawks, cormorants, and frigatebirds along the way. But a few lucky ones make it...photo by John Shore.

Yellow warblers are often found perched in mangroves or manzanillo trees in Galapagos. They are not endemic to the Islands, and can be found from Alaska to Peru...but they sure are cute! Photo by Melissa Adams.

Last week, the Galapagos Biosecurity Agency (ABG) presented its 4-dog Canine Brigade, a project we helped fund to utilize specially-trained "sniffer" dogs to detect items in cargo that aren't allowed in Galapagos, as well as certain invasive species established in the Islands. Black lab Neville gives a demonstration of his skills in this video from the event, courtesy of A. Doherty.
