The IOI Galápagos Department of Conservation has donated two weed whackers and other materials to the Galapagos National Park in Isabela, to mark the Cooperation Agreement between the two institutions for environmental control of introduced species. The tools will be useful for species such as the blackberry, and for similar needs in the future. #donate #conservationGalapagos
