According to the monitoring of volcano activity, located on Isabela Island, the possibility of damage, mainly on the pink iguanas, an endemic species of this area, has been ruled out.

The eruption started more than 24 hours ago, so surveillance of this phenomenon continues.

Since Friday, the Geophysical Institute has reported a cloud of gas and ashes that has reached a height between 3,793 meters above sea level to the northeast and 1,943 meters to the west.

The volcano that has erupted after seven years of relative calm is the highest in the Galapagos archipelago. It was declared first Natural World Heritage Site in 1978.
