   The need for a

 shared vision

                                 for the future of Galapagos

The conservation of nature cannot be separated from other aspects of life.

For responsible human development, we must know the real value of environmental goods and services that we use to live on, and find a consensus for its management.

The Directorate of the Galapagos National Park works to foster the development of a shared social model on the conservation of nature in Galapagos, which integrates the different views on what and how to conserve, which in turn reveals the true social value of protected areas.
Environmental management in populated areas
In Galapagos, where local people live surrounded by two protected areas (the National Park and the Marine Reserve), the use of the land and environmental management in populated areas is of vital importance. The conservation of natural capital of Galapagos must go beyond the management of protected areas.





 
 
 
 
 

  Management programs





Support of the CIMEI




Support of the municipalities




Mortality of birds





Management of sea lions




Water quality


Special use management
In Galapagos, certain special uses of protected areas for both resource extraction and waste disposal are allowed, the results of local development. The Directorate of the Galapagos National Park regulates these uses.




 Management Programs





Demarcation of areas




Pilot plan for management of mines 


Agricultural development
Agricultural activity is closely linked to the integrity of island ecosystems, both for its extension and its shared boundaries with protected natural areas. Prosperous and coordinated actions enable better control of invasive species.



  Management programs





Control plan of plagues




Improvement of
of bovine cattle





Zones with high ecologic values
