ABOUT THIS WORK

VISION DOCUMENT – I

As part of the material supporting the Galapagos Park’s new Management Plan, these leaflets were produced. The need for a shared vision of the future of the archipelago was one of the Management Plan’s key messages.

VISION DOCUMENT – II

The back cover of the popular Galapagos Yearly Organiser was a good channel to communicate conservation and sustainability values to the local communities.

CONSERVATION OUTREACH

The National Park needed to make sure the local communities were aware of, and understood, its work. In this case, a leaflet was produced that explained the lack of risk to the water supply of efforts to eradicate the introduced tilapia fish from a highland lake—the only one of its kind in the islands.
