  1. 2. comma after "Park"

    4. delete "of"

    5. period at the end of the sentence

    6. period after "ostracised" and delete the rest - the last part is redundant - comma after "survived."

    7. I think you need to read more about the man, Charles Darwin. From everything I've read, the idea in this sentence is not correct.
