The Galapagos Islands are a place of unsurpassed beauty and home to an abundance of wildlife.  In addition to spectacular vistas, there are over 3,000 species of marine plants and wildlife.  Visitors to the area may encounter sea lions at play, slow moving tortoises, iguanas, and sea turtles and other native creatures - all living without fear of predators.  But the ecosystems are extremely fragile, and the boost in tourism has become a threat to the unique flora and fauna of the Galapagos.

Click on the pdf below to read the entire article and see how two Labrador retrievers, Aggie & Buck, are protecting the Galapagos by sniffing out illegal drugs coming into the islands and illegal wildlife going out.
