The GALAPAGOS, fast losing its lustre!

A recent study coordinated by the East Anglia University concludes that the consequences of Global warming might take out of local existence up to 50% of the Galapagos unique and rare plant and animal species by the year 2100.

On top of that, Ecuadorans from the mainland regularly poach and steal tortoises, birds and other creatures essential to the uniqueness of the island. Feral dogs, wild goats and rats also take a serious toll.

Ecuador seems unable or unwilling to properly manage this unique world heritage site for the good. This seems not much different to conditions on the mainland part of their country. Canada has issued serious travel advisories against travel in 7-8 of the country’s provinces. Issues ranging from robbery, muggings, rape, land mines, crime cartel gangs, these head the list of concerns in those parts of the country.

Countries unable to manage their unique resources due to poor economies, corruption, ability or ineptitude should make way for others to manage these irreplaceable riches. Some things like the Galapagos should be considered OWNED BY THE WORLD!

The uniqueness of the Galapagos needs to be saved, at least as it is...Darwin would be shocked to see the islands as they are now!
