Fishermen Attack

NPR's Martin Kaste reports on tensions between fishermen and conservationists in the Galapagos Islands, long considered an ecological treasure. Local fisherman are resisting conservation measures imposed by Ecuador's government. Their protests against those rules have turned violent, and they've threatened national park officials and scientists, who complain that the police aren't doing enough to protect them.
