Despite the fact that North Seymour Island is quite small, you can see many emblematic Galapagos animals. On the sandy areas close to the shore, you can observe sea lions. Blue-footed boobies, frigate birds and swallow-tailed gulls nest at different areas. Furthermore, there is a healthy population of land iguanas.
Land iguanas have been brought over from Baltra Island in the 1930s because their living environment was bad on Baltra Island. This relocation carried out by Captain Alain Hancock saved the “Baltra land iguanas” because only about 20 years later, there were no land iguanas left on Baltra Island. Land iguanas have been successfully reintroduced onto Baltra Island now.
