Marine Reserve in Ecuador
By Jerry Brownstein
The Galápagos archipelago is a Natural World Heritage Site that is home to over 2,900 marine species, of which more than 180 are found nowhere else on Earth. These islands became famous in the 19th century when the discoveries made there by Charles Darwin were of great importance in the development of his Theory of Evolution. Ecuador recently created an extensive new marine reserve north of Galápagos to protect sea turtles, sharks and other migratory species. The new reserve, called Hermandad, which means “brotherhood” in Spanish, forms a Pacific corridor as far as Cocos Island National Park in Costa Rica. It adds more than 50,000 square kilometers to the already existing 130,000 of the Galápagos Marine Reserve that has been protected since 1998.
