'The Last to See the Arch': Ocean Researchers Capture View of Darwin's Arch Before Its Collapse

The famed Galapagos rock formation Darwin’s Arch is no more, Ecuador’s environment ministry has said.

The iconic arch collapsed into the sea off Darwin Island on May 17 due to “natural erosion,” the ministry said.

Rosario Alvarez, director of the MigraMar ocean research organization, told Storyful she believed she and her team were “the last to see the arch before its collapse”. Credit: Rosario Alvarez/MigraMar via Storyful
