On Monday, Wolf Volcano erupted 1.1 miles above the surface of the island.
Wolf Volcano is the highest volcano of the Galapagos Island. The island is one of the most active regions in terms of volcanoes. The region is famous for its diverse collection of plants and animals.
As per the Ecuador’s Galapagos National Park administration, the volcano erupted at early Monday morning. It has erupted after a long time period of 33 years. Large amount of fire, smoke and lava are filling sky up to 1.7 miles. The eruption is easily visible from miles.
Fortunately, the volcano is not situated near a populated area. Hence, the recent eruption does not pose any risk to human and animals. However, the flare-up is a big risk for the entire ecosystem of the region.
A large number of people were concerned about the only population of pink iguanas. The animal lives in the northwest side of the country. Currently, the lava is moving towards the southwest direction.
Moreover, the eruption has not affected the tourist activity of the region. But, concerned authorities warn tourist to take preventive measure in order to avoid any unfavorable incident.
