Conservation and Environment in Ecuador: Monthly Updates

Monthly Updates from 2014

Conservation in Ecuador Monthly Update October - November 2014

At the giant tortoise breeding centre on San Cristobal Island, highly aggressive plant species such as Mora (Rubbus nuvius), guava (Psidium guajava L.) and Supirrosa (Lantana camera) have been controlled. This was carried out in the areas where giant tortoises nest. It is important to keep this specific area free of introduced plants to make it easier to locate the nests and collect eggs, and there will be more room for the endemic plants to flourish which grow in this protected area.

Conservation in Ecuador Monthly Update August - September 2014

During these months we have also worked in the El Progreso nursery, growing endemic and native plants which will be planted in areas affected by introduced plants.

Conservation in Ecuador Monthly Update June - July 2014

The ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands are vulnerable to almost any impact; be it climatic or introduction of invasive species. Foreign plants compete with endemic ones, introduced animals such as rats, kill resident birds and destroy nests; and one of the most important jobs we undertake here on the islands is helping the National Park Service (PNG) try to eradicate these invaders.

Conservation in Ecuador Monthly Update April - May 2014

We continue our efforts in the Galapagos National Park conserving the animals and plants native to the islands and we have been able to diversify and work on the island’s highlands, coastal areas and other regions most impacted by alien and introduced species.

Conservation in Ecuador Monthly Update February - March 2014

The activities and projects dedicated to the conservation of the flora and fauna of San Cristobal continue at a good rhythm thanks to all the hard work of our volunteers and staff.

Conservation in Ecuador Monthly Update January 2014

This year we finished as we started, working hard for the conservation of animals and plants endemic and native to the Galapagos Islands. Our environmental awareness programmes have been working well and the community has become involved in several of our conservation initiatives.
