Chile has ratified the Protocol of the Galapagos Agreement

BY: Karen

Great news! The Chilean Congress has ratified the Protocol of the Galapagos Agreement (for conservation of living marine resources on the high seas of the Southeast Pacific). Parties to the Agreement were initially, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile. This agreement might potentially extend within the region if ratified by all member states. Last year, Oceana’s South America office encouraged and prompted the Government towards obtaining the ratification of this treaty from the Chilean Congress.
