From the Paper:

"All of the areas have been designated with zones. These zones designated the fragility of the area. The first one is the recreational zone. There are recreational zones located on each of the islands. There are camping and hiking allowed here. This is the cheapest way to experience the wonders of the Galapagos Islands. The next zone is the Intensive use zone. These zones have less restrictions that the higher zone. This zone has extraordinary scenery and biological and geological diversity. This zone allows for a larger number of people to visit it. Most of the Galapagos Island cruises will visit these zones."
