95% of the species in Galapagos are in good state of conservation

The 95% of species originally registered in the Ecuadorian archipelago of Galapagos are in "good state of conservation". The Manager of the Galapagos National Park explained that the percentage involves all native and endemic species grouped in vertebrates, invertebrates and plants. For example, he said there are 1,238 penguins, a species classified as "very vulnerable" due to climate change, while there are 300 flamingos throughout the archipelago. On the other hand, the estimated population of tortoises is between 45,000 to 60,000 individuals. The population of marine iguanas exceeds 60,000 individuals, while the terrestrial ones, would range between 10,000 and 15,000. "These species are very important in the ecosystem of Galapagos, and having these numbers are really important," the PNG concluded that "95% of the native species to Galapagos remain in good and excellent state of conservation," he said.
