CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

In highlighting the natural elements of Ecuador, it must come as no surprise that the protection of these areas is of utmost importance in response to the devastating effects of climate change. Its geographical location has resulted in catastrophic effects from El Niño events, particularly those of 1982-83 and 1997-98. The resulting high degree of exposure from these events, combined with the vulnerability of key economic sectors such as agriculture, water resources, infrastructure and tourism, have made it strikingly clear that Ecuador is a country vulnerable to climate change.

The Galapagos islands are extremely susceptible to the changes in ocean temperature, which are emphasised by the effects of El Niño. Change in ocean temperature, although only slight, affect all the marine life of Galapagos in a powerful way, and in a short space of time. The slowing of the Humboldt current has meant that sea temperatures rise, reducing the growth rate and the abundance of algae and seaweed, the staple food source for many sea creatures, particularly the marine iguanas. While some species are able to migrate away from the Islands to find food, others cannot. Species like the flightless cormorant and the Galapagos penguin struggle to find food. Not only are they threatened by starvation, but they also stop reproducing.

The natural occurrence of the El Niño and the devastation it causes should be an indicator of the effects that can be caused by human-influenced climate change. The monitoring of climate change within Galapagos is extensive, with teams of scientists and researchers from all over the globe measuring and tracking weather patterns and animal behaviour.

The information gathered is being used to improve understanding on the true impacts of both long-term climate change, and short-term changes from El Niño events on these vulnerable species and their ecosystems, critical for informing future conservation management, that can be carried over to help Ecuador as a whole. Education is vital for this region, but the famous location of the Galapagos cannot become the sole representative of resources for a country that has such extensive, and fragile, biodiversity.
