  1. Reading about the Canadian yacht “accident” reminds me of why the islands are now a World Heritage Site in Danger. From what I have learned, life either flies in, blows in, swims in, floats in, or is brought in by people. Unfortunately, people are the greatest predators on the islands and are responsible for the wildlife murders (53 sea lions in 2008), infections and introduced species (e.g., rats, cats, fire ants, goats, pigs and many foreign plant species) that now endanger the islands. People may inhabit only three percent of the islands, but that three percent accounts for close to 31,000 residents (legal and irregular)–and doesn’t include the 163 thousand tourists (2009) that visit yearly. I have become passionate about the islands since my visit there. Anyone interested in hearing about my memoir on the islands (Chasing a Dream in the Galápagos: A Personal Evolution) can go to my Web site.

  2. Great information and much needed. Many thanks
