In 2016, Ecuador created a marine sanctuary in the area of Darwin and Wolf that includes 15,000 square miles as off-limits to all fishing to conserve the sharks that congregate there and the ecosystem on which they rely.
32% of the waters around the Galapagos islands will now be protected from fishing.
