The Galapagos Conservancy has posted the following:
“Over the course of seven days, a team of rangers and technicians from the Galapagos National Park Service (GNPS) conducted intensive monitoring on Wolf Island in the northern part of the Galapagos Archipelago. The initial results indicate that the island’s ecosystem is in a very good state of conservation.”
Because Wolf is so far north, it’s not visited by tourists and is uninhabited, helping explain its pristine condition. Technicians have brought back soil samples from Wolf for further testing.
