The first pilot plan to carry a message of environmental conservation through the experiences of care in the Galapagos Marine Reserve (RMG).
The islands are known for the presence of spectacular sea creatures such as sharks, whale sharks, cetaceans and manta rays.
Galapagos works to further improve the quality of the tourism industry, this time with the formation of new specialized guides. 167 professionals were trained with the main objective of offering services that guarantee the tourists safety, while contributing to the preservation of the natural heritage.
Sharks, stingrays, penguins, corals, sea lions, dolphins, plant organisms, and fish shoals are among the 3,500 species of flora and fauna registered in the Galapagos Marine Reserve, established in 1998.
An international team led by the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) has found that giant tortoises, lava lizards, medium-sized birds, small birds and endemic finches of the Galapagos Islands disseminate up to 16 different types of seeds in the archipelago.
