   Our world has been around for four billion years,

Extinction of animals is one of our greatest fears,

Many have disappeared or just not survived,

On the Galapagos Islands, rare species have thrived,

Like the Galapagos turtle and marine iguana,

Living on islands whose heat is a sauna,

Are these species proof of ancient history,

Or is their existence there just a big mystery?

Home only to these islands, they must be preserved,

So that their plummet to extinction is upwardly curved,

And that all humans, now and to come, will be able to see,

A living part of earth's history
