EMILIO IZQUIERDO (Ecuador): Ecuador gives the highest priority to its environmental defence. It seeks the fullest participation of indigenous people and ethnic minorities in the country's social and economic development. Further, it fosters internal and external mechanisms to strengthen the protection of the practices of indigenous communities related to biodiversity. The Galapagos Islands are negatively affected by population growth and increase of illegal fisheries, as well as natural phenomena. Ecuador considers the protection of the Islands a national priority. The Government works to stimulate civilian participation in all phases of environmental issues.

In that regard, he mentioned that the Member States of the Permanent Commission of the South Pacific had, in 2000, signed the Agreement on the Conservation of Living Resources in the High Sea, also known as the Galapagos Agreement.  He expressed concern about the transport of hazardous waste through the region, and called for stricter compliance with norms and standards that applied to security.

After the oil spill in 2001, the Ecuadorian government agreed to work on a plan for a renewable resource for the Galapagos Islands.

Plan calls for cleaner motors for boats, and replacing diesel power with biomass or other renewable sources.

total number of visitors to the islands increased from 17,500 in 1980 to 71,500 in 2000.23

By creating economic disparities between tourist destinations and the economies that surround them, the expansionary influences of tourism also create pressures for population growth through migration to fill jobs linked directly or indirectly to tourism. Unless migration can be controlled, a 10% increase in tourism stimulates migration by an amount equivalent to 5% of the existing island workforce.

The most serious threat to the Galapagos is species introduced by humans. Hawaii is an example of where we lost much of the species diversity and native habitat due to species introduction. Tourists are instructed not to take food ashore, you can´t camp ashore, you can´t go ashore without a park gude. There is a quarantine on most of the islands, and in spite of that non-native plants and animals are getting in. The land is under the jurisdiction of The Galapagos National Park Service and is a park. The marine areas are a marine reserve.
