ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need to maintain cooperation among business and nature conservation leaders, citing the example of Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. 95 % of the islands is a national park system and majority of its pre-human bio-diversity is intact. The park encourages the mingling of human beings with the wildlife, instead of banning them. Several businesses cooperate with the conservancy to create codes of conduct and follow strict guidelines as stated by licensed naturalists.
