Environmentalists remove 4.6 tonnes of garbage the Galapagos Islands

A group of 18 people, including rangers, volunteers, fishermen and environmentalists the organization Conservation International, did a real cleansing of the Galapagos Islands. In two collections they removed 4.6 tons of waste land and sea.

Ecuador's environment minister, Marcelo Mata Guerrero, said that in the first collection, in February, 2.5 tons of garbage were removed and now in March, the group managed to remove another 2.1 tons the archipelago.

The action favored mainly the more distant islands, such as Genovesa, Pinta and Santiago. Environmentalists also counted on the support of the Coca-Cola Foundation of Ecuador.

Coastal Cleaning

Working on the Galápagos Islands is part of the Coastal Cleaning and Marine Waste Management Program, maintained by the director of the Galápagos National Park of the Ministry of Environment and Water.

The idea is to carry out continuous cleaning and to remove all the garbage that accumulates in more distant islands, carried by the current of the sea.

The route carried out in March was 22 kilometers of coastline. The team was able to map 12 points the garbage is accumulated when carried by the current of the sea.

After cleaning, the material was classified and registered for recycling.
