Volcano in Galápagos

This item appears on page 61 of the July 2015 issue.

The Wolf volcano on Isabela Island in the Galápagos Islands erupted on May 25, ejecting lava and spewing smoke. Isabella Island is home to the world’s only population of pink iguanas, but the eruption was not expected to threaten the iguanas or the island’s only town, Puerto Villamil. The Wolf volcano last erupted in 1982.
