Is the number of species found in the Galapagos Islands decreasing?

    Unfortunately, global warming and people threaten the species on the Galapagos Islands. People seem to be the bigger threat however. There has been a 6.2% annual growth in population for the Galapagos as people migrate for their livelihoods. People also brought invasive, non-native species to the islands that threaten the native species. Also, commercial fishing took it’s toll. Luckily, there are very strict conservation laws on the islands these days, including laws that ban industrial fishing.

    The steadily increasing human population as well as weather incidents like el nino have adversely affected the biodiversity of the islands.
