Legacy Trips 2012 - Galapagos Islands

The Conservancy in the Galapagos Though the archipelago became a national park in 1959, the Galapagos face one of the biggest global threats to biodiversity: invasive species. These non-native species have decimated entire populations of native fauna and flora that previously had no natural predators. To stop invasive species and other threats, the Conservancy has developed a demonstration project that illustrates conservation-friendly land use practices.
The Conservancy has also been instrumental in developing accurate maps of the archipelago, crucial for effective conservation. Moreover, by designing and implementing a leadership training and support program, the Conservancy fosters increased conservation awareness in four key sectors of Galapagos’ society: fishers, tourism operators, youth groups and farmers.
