The Galapagos National Park Directorate works to manage and operate the archipelago island ecosystems, within the limits of their resilience, to ensure the preservation of its ecological integrity, and the rational use of environmental goods and services they generate for the population.
Management of native and endemic
The first conservation efforts in Galapagos' history occurred in the 1930s, with the request to the Ecuadorian state to protect some of the most representative species of the archipelago, to avoid their extinction. Today, this purpose is as important as ever.
Control and Eradication of introduced animals
Invasive species pose the greatest threat to nature in the Galapagos. The efforts of control and eradication of introduced animals focus on those more aggressive and the most recent.
Control and eradication of introduced plants
Introduced invasive plants follow a relentless advance through the island territory, if not controlled, they will become more dangerous to the flora and fauna native and endemic to the Galapagos.
Island control and monitoring
Whether for the use of natural resources, transportation of luggage or the movement of tourists, the Galapagos Directorate of the Galapagos National Park performs daily tasks of control and monitoring of the populated islands.
