Ecuador | Crowdfunders head off development by buying site in Galápagos; most to be given to NP

Conservationists are celebrating the creation of the first privately-owned nature reserve in the Galapagos, after a crowdfunding campaign raised $1.75 million (£1.35m) to save the fragile land from the clutches of developers.

Sale of the first section of the 568-acre site on San Cristobal, where Charles Darwin first went ashore in 1835, will be completed this week.
