Sharing the Shore: Urbanization and Human-Wildlife Conflict in the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are experiencing rapid economic and environmental change, driven largely by coastal urbanization. A competitive and corrupt land market, combined with a disorganized regulatory regime, threaten younger generations' socioeconomic mobility, as well as the ecological integrity of this increasingly damaged "natural laboratory." Meanwhile urbanization threatens the endangered Galapagos sea lion, with ramifications for animal health and human safety. My research addresses the implications of urbanization on socioeconomic mobility and human-wildlife conflict.
