The Galapagos is the home to a huge diversity in biological systems but the island is undergoing a sensitive stage where on one hand it needs funds and resources brought in by the tourists and at the same it has to survive the ever increasing foreign population brings to the balance of the island. Also, within the island itself, the resources are not distributed evenly giving rise to internal conflicts and inconsistency.
Almost for their entire history, the Galapagos Islands were free from predators and also humans. During such flourishing periods, they developed the most exotic and unique flora and fauna. It was after Darwin's visit to the islands in 1835, and its contribution to the theory of evolution through natural selection that it gained an international acclaim. So much so, that today the number of visitors visiting the islands are over one lakh per year from all over the globe.
The changes that visitors bring in provide a huge amount of hindrance to the peaceful existence and flourishing of the species. The process of their natural harmony with the nature and among themselves is rendered invalid, and hence the balance is disturbed.
The Galapagos today is no longer the Galapagos that Darwin did visit. But at the same time, it would be unfair if the efforts of the government of Ecuador aren't acknowledged. The government and other functional bodies are making sure that the population of animals there and vegetation are not affected.
At the same time it is important to draw fruitful revenue out of foreign visitors to the place to provide a better environment and protection of the Galapagos' flora and fauna. The Ecuadorian government restricts the number of tourists visiting the islands annually. Confirm the details before visiting. Your bags and luggage will undergo strict checking at the time of arrival and departure. It is often joked that don't leave anything there apart from your finger prints. If you are a visitor to the islands, you should adhere strictly to the rules and regulations of the National Park.
