Galapagos Islands June Climate

The Giant Tortoises on Santa Cruz Island start their migration in June from the highlands to the lowlands in search of suitable nesting places. Some groups of humpback whales that migrate up the coast of Ecuador reach the Galapagos in June. Southern migrant birds have started their journey towards the North. Galapagos is known to be a rest stop for such birds. Some species of cetaceans, commonly known as whales, dolphins, and porpoises, also follow this pattern of migration.
