As part of an internship program with the Charles Darwin Research Station (CDRS) in Galapagos, Ecuador, a variety of projects were conducted by students regarding marine ecology and native terrestrial plant restoration. The information obtained from each of these studies can be used to improve the management of marine ecosystems and the restoration of the terrestrial environment in the Galapagos Islands. The concerted effort by the interns and scientists of the CDRS will provide information for more effective fishing laws on P. clemensi, provide a detailed comparison between seamount and pelagic habitat to help further seamount habitat protection, a record of the effectiveness of marine protected areas on mangrove habitats, and the islands with improved techniques for native plant restoration.
