By Jason Bremner and Jaime Perez, 2001 This paper reviews the most recent demographic information available from the Galapagos special census. This special census information is compared to previous census data in order to reveal important trends and gender role changes. The remainder of the paper is dedicated to the review of several smaller scale surveys recently conducted by social scientists in the Galapagos. These surveys have in various degrees measured the attitudes, knowledge and practices of different subsets of men and women in the Galapagos. The analysis of existing data is used to make conclusions about gender changes in demographics and potential impacts on resources use patterns and conservation. The paper makes recommendations for mitigating these impacts and incorporating gender-based population-environment research into conservation planning.
