North Isabela: Isabela island is the biggest on the archipelago, with 4588 km2, represents 60 % of the total land surface of the Galapagos islands. Isabela is one of the four populated islands and host a population of 2200 inhabitants. It is formed by the union of six volcanoes, five of which are active (Cerro Azul, Sierra Negra, Alcedo, Darwin and Wolf) Ecuador volcano is inactive. The island transverse the equatorial line, which passes over Wolf volcano, which is the highest point of the archipelago (1707 mamsl). Isabela houses about 70 % of the Galapagos´ terrestrial biodiversity, with a high degree of endemism. One example of this is the endemic plant species Galvezia leucantha var. leucantha, unique to Douglas cape in Fernandina and on the North and centre of Isabela. However, due to detrimental impacts of herbivorous introduced species, such as goats and rats, there are the last five individuals of G. leucantha var. leucantha between lava fields, close to the mangroves on Playa Tortuga Negra.
