Google Adds Galapagos Islands to Google Street View & Asks Users to Be ‘Darwin For a Day’

Google has added the Galapagos Islands to Google Street View and is encouraging users to explore and document the plant and animal life there using the Darwin For a Day web app. All of the data collected through the Darwin For a Day website will be submitted to the iNaturalist community and the Charles Darwin Foundation to further research of the Galapagos Islands. For behind-the-scenes information on how Google captured the new Street View imagery, head over to Street View Treks: Galapagos Islands.
