The Galapagos National Park has done an excellent job over the past 20 years to ensure the preservation of the Galapagos, it has been fighting an uphill battle and it has lacked both resources and political support.
All conservation programmes in Galapagos are carried out by the National Park Service with the help and support of the Charles Darwin Research Station, which was set up in 1960 to advise the Ecuadorian government on the conservation of this most important of all national parks.
The Galapagos Conservation Trust has been set up in the UK to help and support the Galapagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Research Station by raising awareness of and funds for the preservation of this truly wonderful archipelago. We will not, as the article implies, be making unilateral decisions, the main work and decisions will be for the Galapagos National Park to make with our full support and co-operation.
