Restless Isabela

Restless Isabela explores the paradoxical effects of tourism and development on Isabela Island in the Galápagos – as an increasingly visited tourist destination, the island must develop to accomodate the vast economic opportunities, yet by inviting more people the islanders also invite invasive species, income disparity, and unsustainable development to their sheltered shores.
