Each species also plays a unique role in servicing the ecosystem, ensuring that it operates smoothly. Feel free to ask about our conservation programs. They therefore play an important role in germinating seeds, as well as in thinning out and opening up new areas of ground for different types of vegetation to grow. 28 million to create a new company, Predator Free New Zealand, that will lead the cull. As well as increasing the acidity of the water, much of the rubbish consists of plastics (up to 75%), which can cause myriad problems for marine life.

We all love the forest, well most of us do and we should love the forest because it is what keeps us alive That approach also means that they believe that ecosystem and biodiversity conservation actively involve the people who live around the park, and, in many cases, who are responsible for introducing non-native and invasive species to the island. Galapagos Conservancy (GC) advances and supports the conservation of the unique biodiversity and ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands through directed research, conservation management, informed public policy, and building a sustainable society.

Conservation programs must be planned with long-term vision for the future, a common set of goals for the land and sea, and high standards demanding nothing less than full protection of the islands of Galapagos. The archipelago receives protection through the Galapagos National Park, created in 1959, and covering 97% of the archipelago, named as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1978, and the Galapagos Marine Reserve created in 1998 that extends 50,000 square miles.

However, we’d like to let you know that 98% of the archipelago became a National Park back in 1959, thanks in large part to the international scientific community To contribute and collaborate on educational programs related to the conservation of the islands. With only three percent of the islands set aside for human settlement, there is little room for people, and little for them to do except fish. The human impact -- both the growing rate of permanent residency and tourism -- poses a threat to the islands' ecosystems and availability of resources and services.

80% of the loss of biodiversity worldwide has occurred on islands where people introduced invasive species like rats, cats and goats, that devastate unique flora and fauna. The Galapagos petrel is a large, long-winged bird that floats on air currents. To avoid cold weather conditions. Eradication projects on inhabited islands must involve the community and can present additional opportunities to generate significant benefits for it.

By deepening their understanding of the natural world and the conservation challenges that we face in the future, we hope to inspire and engage students in the sustainable development of Galapagos and the wider world through the Discovering Galapagos programme. Additionally, the Ecuadorian government established 90 percent of the archipelago as a wildlife preserve, the Galapagos National Park and Galapagos Marine Reserve This project is a new approach to community engagement and eco-tourism and we hope it will ...
