Paracas

(LIMITED INTERNAL RIGHTS: LICENSE EXPIRES 06/01/2013) The San Gallan Islands, in Paracas, National Reserve, Ica, Peru. The islands are an important site for breeding colonies of sea lions (Otaria byronia). The Nature Conservancy, Pro Naturaleza and the Peruvian park service collaborated with local stakeholders — including conservationists, fishermen and tourism operators — to create a management plan that identified solutions to overfishing, uncontrolled tourism and waste dumping in Paracas National Reserve.
