Galápagos Islands 2022

In less than six months, a one-of-a-kind Galápagos Islands habitat will open at the Houston Zoo.

Ahead of the April 2023 opening, KPRC 2 meteorologist Anthony Yanez got to travel to the Islands with team members from the Houston Zoo to learn about the animals and to meet the people working to save them.

You can find links to Anthony’s daily posts with detailed information about the journey at the bottom of this article.

A slideshow of images from the trip is featured at the top. (If you have trouble viewing it on your device, click here.)

We also have shared some of our favorite social posts from the week below. Keep scrolling to see who Anthony had to compete with for pool time, the celebrity he ran into in Galápagos, and one of the most adorable videos Anthony captured on his phone.
