ECONOMY OF THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS


The inhabitants of the islands make their money through tourism, farming and fishing - all of which have damaged the islands and their habitats to some extent. There has been over-fishing of sea cucumbers and lobsters as well as illegal fishing of sharks (for their fins), whales and other endangered animals. SANTA CRUZ is having lots of problems with introduced plants - berries and plantain, in particular.









Tourism brings in approximately 60,000 to 70,000 people/year. Be a conscientious tourist, keeping on the paths, not disturbing the animals or flora, and listening to the instructions of your guide, please! As tourists, it is our job to set an example and be aware of the impact that each and every one of us has on these islands.
