The Ecuadorian government, for more than three decades, has declared its desire to conserve the natural resources of the archipelago through concrete actions of administration and management.

The Galapagos National Park Service works hand in hand with the Darwin Research Station

Galapagos activities
implementingtheir common goals of conservation and preservations of the natural resources with the Galapagos National Park and Galapagos Marine Reserve.

The park service approves all itineraries of boats visiting the islands making sure that the tourism is distributed evenly throughout the islands. They also work as the licensing board for guides in the islands.

The Entrance Officer will give you a list of Galapagos National Park Rules. With an increasing number of tourists visiting the Galapagos Islands each year, it be comes a matter of extreme importance that you not only follow these rules, but that you set an example for others, showing that tourists can be conservation-minded.

There are those that look at the expansion of tourism as a

double-edged sword, feeling that the delicate natural order of the archipelago will be adversely affected by the very visitors who want to experience this special place on earth. Man does not have a very good track record in the Galapagos; it won't take much in the way of insensitive behavior on the part of a few to result in the outraged cries of "enough."
