"Marine conservation in the Galapagos of XXI Century: facing challenges Charles Darwin did not encounter.”

Along the last 35 years, marine conservation in Galapagos has followed different patterns and formats, based on the varied values and principles sustaining the goal of marine protection. The islands currently face different levels of threats and the diverse stressors are influencing changes at different pace and scales.  Illustrations of these marine conservation schemes will allow a better understanding of how the marine conservation aims have (or not) been achieved in the so called 'paradise'.
