Are the Galapagos Islands protected? Can you still visit them?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Galapagos Islands were internationally recognized as a Biosphere Reserve under the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme in 1984. In 1986, the Galapagos Marine Resources Reserve was established, including all waters within 15 nautical miles of a baseline joining the outermost points of the Galapagos Islands. This was upgraded to a Biological Reserve of Marine Resources in 1996.

    Tourists are admitted into three of six zones and parts of islands are designated as 23 Intensive Visitor Zones.
