Galapagos National Park

The park was established on 14 May 1936 by Executive Decree No. 31 and ratified on 4 July 1959 by Decree No. 17. At that time the boundary of the national park was fixed to include all Galapagos Islands, except those which had already been colonized as of 20 July 1959. After final establishment of the boundaries in 1968, 96% of the land area of the archipelago was included in the park.


The Galapagos Islands were inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1978 and were internationally recognized as a Biosphere Reserve under the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programmer in 1984. In 1986, the Galapagos Marine Resources Reserve (GMRR) was established including all waters within 15 nautical miles of a baseline joining the outermost points of the Galapagos Islands. This was upgraded to a Biological Reserve of Marine Resources in December 1996.

Galapagos Islands landscapes pictures, Charles Darwin Station, Santa Cruz IslandThe Galapagos National Park contributes to the development of the insular region in accordance with the characteristics and capacity of the unique Galapagos ecosystems. In many occasions, policies and procedures have been defined and ratified in order to support a selective and special development in accordance with the specific conditions of the islands. The Ecuadorian government, for more than three decades, has declared its desire to conserve the natural resources of the archipelago through concrete actions of administration and management.
The Galapagos National Park Service works hand in hand with the Charles Darwin Research Station implementing their common goals of conservation and preservations of the natural resources with the Galapagos National Park and Galapagos Marine Reserve. The park service approves all itineraries of boats visiting the islands making sure that the tourism is distributed evenly throughout the islands. They also work as the licensing board for guides in the islands.

Galapagos National Park rules

The National Park Service has developed rules to aid in the preservation.

  1. No plant, animal, or remains of such (including shells, bones, and pieces of wood), or other natural objects should not be removed or disturbed.

  2. Be careful not to transport any live material to the islands, or from island to island.
  3. Do not take any food to the uninhabited islands, for the same reason.
  4. Do not touch or handle the animals.
  5. Do not feed the animals. It can be dangerous to you, and in the long run would destroy the animals' social structure and breeding habits.

  6. Do not startle or chase any animal from its resting or nesting spot.
  7. Stay within the areas designated as visiting sites.
  8. Do not leave any litter on the islands, or throw any off your boat.
  9. Do not deface the rocks.
  10. Do not buy souvenirs or objects made of plants or animals from the islands.
  11. Do not visit the islands unless accompanied by a licensed National Park Guide.

  12. Restrict your visits to officially approved areas.
  13. Show your conservationist attitude.

The Galapagos National Park is different and more special than other National Parks. More than 1,900 of its 5,000 unique species are endemic, that is, they are found no where else in the world. Second, these species are very fragile, and third, people have lived here even before it became a National Park.
