In July 2010, UNESCO voted that the Galapagos islands would lose its endangered status as it was considered properly protected by the Ecudorian government. The BBC/Lonely Planet has an article out questioning whether the decision to remove the endangered status was premature. I wonder if they took into consideration the fishing of sharks etc. That seems to be off the table as far as I can see, which is a pity.
The link is not any good for us folk in the UK though. I will see if I can find an alternative.
