A sign of things to come?
I think so and so does Johnny Enlow.
But first, let’s take a look at what happened.
Named after the explorer, “Darwin’s Arch” is in the Galapagos Islands.
Or “was” there….now it’s wiped out!
Take a look:
Natural erosion finally took its toll on Darwin’s Arch, a famous rock formation off the coast of the remote Galápagos Islands, forcing the top of the archway to collapse into the Pacific Ocean: https://t.co/PmOq3CpeUP

Darwin's Arch collapsed and left the locals devastated, but what was behind its collapse?
In this case, human activities isn't completely to blame, the main source of the arch collapse is erosion over time.

One of the most famous rock formations in the Galapagos Islands has collapsed into the sea.
The top of Darwin’s Arch, located in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean archipelago, fell as “a consequence of natural erosion,” according to the Ministry of Environment for Ecuador.
Images of the structure, which now consists of just two pillars, were posted on the social media accounts for the ministry on Monday alongside a statement confirming the news.
“The collapse of Darwin’s Arch, the attractive natural bridge found less than a kilometer from the main area of Darwin Island, was reported,” the ministry said in the statement.
Named after English biologist Charles Darwin, the arch is considered one of the best diving spots in the Pacific Ocean archipelago that’s part of Ecuador and located hundreds of miles off the country’s coast.
The UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its many endemic animal and plant species, famously inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Tour company Aggressor Adventures, which organizes group trips to various destinations around the world, indicated in a post shared on Facebook that one of its tour groups witnessed the incident take place.
“Unfortunately today, our guests of the Galapagos Aggressor III experienced a once in a lifetime event,” the company shared.
