Abstract: The history of the Galapagos Islands has been riddled with exploitation, first by pirates and whalers, and currently by ecotourists. Though laws protecting the islands have been in existence virtually since permanent colonies have been established, the lack of enforcement and problems in monitoring have lead to instances of rampant violations. The lack of stakeholder involvement in policy decisions has resulted in violence on multiple occasions. And far too often regulations and policy have followed the problem, instead of preventing it. This thesis follows the natural history of the Galapagos Islands, their formation and unique flora and fauna, examines current problems facing conservation, such as illegal fishing, invasive species and, ecotourism, and evaluates the current management plans and conservation strategies for both the Galapagos National Park and the Galapagos Marine Reserve.
