1698 William Dampier Pirate Naturalist

1698 William Dampier, naturalist, explorer and buccaneer (August 1651 - March 1715). A posthumous 1787 Copperplate engraving by Charles Sherwin after the 1698 painting by T. Murray. On the engraving, Dampier holds his book "Dampiers Voyages" (A New Voyage Round the World" 1697). Dampier was famously described as "a pirate of exquisite mind" and became a fashionable friend of the Royal Society after his accounts of his explorations were published. As a sailor and Buccaneer he was the first man to go three times around the world - under the pirate Captains; Sharp, Swan, Davis and Cooke. He took careful notes of the natural history he saw, becoming the first man to describe many features of Australia, New Guinea and Galapagos. Darwin much later referred to him as "dear old Dampier" being so familiar with his naturalistic accounts

Galapagos giant tortoise thermoregulation Featured Print

Galapagos giant tortoise thermoregulation

Galapagos giant tortoises (Geochelone nigra vandenburghi) gather in volcanically heated thermal pools to keep warm overnight at altitude. The pools are found on the rim of volcano Alcedo on the island of Isabela of the Galapagos archipelago. The photos show them inactive at night and then emerging to forage at sunrise. Local vegetation is poisoned by volcanic minerals in the soil. Alcedo is the site of succesfull efforts to remove invasive introduced species (principally goats) which threaten the stable ecology of the caldera and the tortoises long-term future
