On July 5, 2018, the Ministry of Environment of Ecuador announced the signing of four agreements between various institutions, in order to guarantee the conservation of the Galapagos National Park. The good news comes just as part of the celebration of the 59th anniversary of its creation as a National Park.
Jorge Carrión, Director of the Galapagos National Park, and Carlos Ortega, technical secretary of the Governing Council of Galápagos, signed an agreement that allows the use of 2.5 hectares of land for the installation of a decommissioning yard for Santa Cruz island.
In addition, the Charles Darwin Foundation signed, together with the Ministry of Environment, a document that guarantees inter-institutional cooperation in different areas for a period of five years.
On the other hand, the marine transport company “Islas Galápagos Turismo y Vapores” will carry out activities to control and eradicate introduced species, protect native and endemic species; and reforest 20 hectares of trees.
The latest agreement, signed with Ecology Project International, will make it easier for local and international students to support environmental education and conservation activities.
