RULES OF THE GALAPAGOS
 
Rules of the Galapagos National Park
 

TOn the island, groups of no more than 15 visitors are led by a naturalist certified by the Galapagos National Park Service. With this policy it is intended to reduce the impact onthe fragile ecosystems while providing a sense of solitude and privacy on the Islands.
Don´t take anything from the islands, but photographs, and leave only your footprints

  • Please do not disturb or remove any native plant, rock, or animal.
  • Please be careful not to transport any live material to the islands or from island to island. Each one has its unique fauna and flora and introductions can quickly destroy their balance.
  • Please do not touch or handle animals. Even the fearless animals of the Galapagos require a certaindistance, and do not like to be encroached upon. Please respect this distance as attempting to touch them will disturb them.
  • Please do not feed the animals. This can be dangerous to you and it will also affect the social structure and natural behavior of the animals.
  • Please do not startle or chase any animal from its resting or nesting spot.
  • Please stay on the marked trails. Many people visit the islands and it is important that people do not damage vegetation or cause erosion.
  • Please do not leave, or throw any litter over board.
  • Please do not buy any souvenirs made from native Galapagos products, (except for wood) as this encourages the exploitation of these resourses. Especially do not buy sea lion teeth, black coral, or tortoise / turtle shell products.
  • Do not smoke on the islands.
  • Do not hesitate to show your conservationist attitude.
