One of the key factors that attracts travelers to book Galapagos Islands cruises is the archipelago's celebrated wildlife. Indeed, the illustrious chain of islands has entranced many animal enthusiasts over the years, even inspiring the great Charles Darwin to conceive the theory of evolution. Yet while the much-vaunted theory preaches a doctrine of "survival of the fittest," scientists in the Galapagos have launched a new conservation program designed to protect many of the islands' weakest inhabitants from imported predators.

1. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
