Chincha Islands

For my project on the Peruvian guano boom of the 19th century, I recently visited the Chincha Islands. This group of three islands off the coast near the town of Pisco was the main source of guano during that time period. I posted a couple of videos on Instagram, featuring the key guano birds: the Peruvian booby, the Guanay cormorant, and the Peruvian pelican.
