Galapagos National Park

Galapagos Islands tortoisesIn many occasions, policies and procedures have been defined and ratified in order to support a selective and special development in accordance with the specific conditions of the islands.

The Ecuadorian government, for more than three decades, has declared its desire to conserve the natural resources of the archipelago through concrete actions of administration and management.

The Galapagos National Park Service works hand in hand with the Charles Darwin Research Station implementing their common goals of conservation and preservations of the natural resources with the Galapagos National Park and Galapagos Marine Reserve.

The Galapagos National Park is different and more special than other National Parks. More than 1,900 of its 5,000 unique species are endemic, that is, they are found no where else in the world. Second, these species are very fragile, and third, people have lived here even before it became a National Park.
