Tourism runs wild on the Galápagos

September 09, 2007

Two years ago, when my tour group first arrived in the Galápagos, I looked out into the waters of San Cristóbal and swore I was in Catalina instead of an exotic group of islands about 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador.

The sight of boats, yachts, catamarans and even two cruise ships floating in the harbor shocked and dismayed me.

In her article ["Evolution Runs Wild," Sept. 2], Carol Stogsdill should have heightened her discussion of the serious perils facing this remarkable place.

If he were alive today, Charles Darwin would be horrified to see the Galápagos tourist mecca.
