The Galápagos archipelago has a population of around 40,000, is a province of Ecuador, a country in northwestern South America, and the islands are all part of Ecuador's national park system. The principal language on the islands is Spanish.
The Galapagos Islands are unique - they are probably the only place in the world where we can get a flavour of how the world was before humans.
1) The Galapagos national park and marine reserve are unique and extraordinary ecosystems.
2) In common with other oceanic island systems, the Galapagos Islands are fragile.
3) Human activities cause changes in fragile island ecosystems like the Galapagos
4)Today, there are new demands on the biodiversity of the islands.
5)The Galapagos Islands are a microcosm of the social, political, ecological and economic changes occurring in the world.
