Are the Galapagos islands protected by Ecuador, or by some international organization like the UN?

    It is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. That means it is being maintained by UN, although it remains a property of the country it’s in. The World Heritage Programme may provide funding, technical and emergency assistance, and professional training. The country where the site is located is supposed to set up necessary conversation and protection, as well as studying and raising awareness of them. So the Galapagos Islands are designated by Ecuador as a national park and a biological marine preserve. Basically, the islands are protected both on national and international levels.
