Michael Nagle for The New York Times
Bob Wise of Loose Moose Films and BoatBits has a nice post regarding invasive and endangered species in paradise, especially on the Galapagos . While the organization he cites is concerned with non- human species, and apparently doing good works, it's my feeling that the most invasive species on the island is human. While searching for an image to put up I was overwhelmed by the number of resort hotels on the islands. The photo above is from a New York Times article , by Jennifer Conlin on the threats of tourism to the amazing but fragile ecosystems of the Galapagos. Bob has a really good blog which is mostly about boats but he's also a foodie and likes to put up recipes and cookbook reviews. Take a look at the blog, and also the Times article. Thanks Bob.
