Lone Guardian Keeps Watch on “Poor Man’s Galápagos”

May 19, 2014---Off the coast of Peru, a series of islands known as the Poor Man's Galápagos are inhabited only by seabirds and sea lions. Just one person is permitted on the largest of these dry, barren islands as its guardian. It's a job of solitude, separation from family, and living among the birds' guano and the constant barking of sea lions.
