ARCHIPIELAGO LOS ROQUES

Designed like: Ecological Treasure  by Guiatur - Venezuela

ECOLOGICAL TREASURE 

Los Roques has a management plan in which seven management
zones are outlined:


Integral Protection Zone: Made up of the islands Selesquí, Los Canquises,
Isla Larga and the Esparquí-Sebastopol-Boca de Cote complex, and
emergent zones around them like sand bars and reefs. Access is restricted
and only monitoring and research activities supervised by INPARQUES are
allowed. 
Primitive Zone: Includes the marine area that surrounds Selesquí Island
coral reef, Cayo Carenero, and part of the area that surrounds Los
Canquises (a distance of half a nautical mile [926 m]). Also included are
Cayo Sal, Dos Mosquises Norte, Cayo de Agua, Bequevé, and the East
Barrier, which contains the keys of Nordisquí, Cayo Vapor, Cayo Muerto,
Botosquí, Saquisaqui, among others (see map). 
Managed Natural Environment Zone: Includes the keys Remanso Isla
Felipe, Isla Fernando, Yonquí, Sarquí, Espenquí, Isla Agustín (Prestonquí),
Turquí, Sandquí, Cayo Loco, and Rabusquí. All areas that are not included
in any other category, as the waters that lie outside the archipelago but
that remain inside park limits, fall under this category. 
Recreation Zone: Includes Gran Roque islands, and the keys and reefs of
Francisquíes, Rasquí, Madrisquí, Cayo Pirata, Noronquises and Crasquí. 
Zone of Historic, Cultural, Archaeologic and Paleontologic Interest:
Includes certain sectors of Bequevé, Cayo de Agua, Dos Mosquises, middle
Noronquí, Cayo Sal, Los Canquises, Gran Roque, and Crasquí keys. 
Service Zone: Comprises areas of the park allotted for the installation of
infrastructure for tourism, scientific research, and anchoring zones for
boats. 
Special Use Zone: Includes all areas that have been affected or submitted
to activities that go against park rules to which special management plans
have been assigned. These are: 
Navigation Channel, a 100m wide waterway that determines the
entrance route to the park by sea. 
Dos Mosquises Sur key, includes the surface of this key and all
installations dedicated to scientific research. 
Gran Roque Island, where the only permanent human settlement is
found and the categories of Managed Natural Environment Zone,
Service Zone, Recreation Zone, and Traditional Human Settlement
Zone have been included on the island. 

According to the AUA's creation decree (1,214 of Gaceta Oficial N° 4,250E,
01/18/1991), this organization is in charge of administering public services and
urban regulations in Gran Roque Island, the fulfillment of the management plan
for the town and tourist activity control. The desalination plant that produces water
for human consumption, in addition to the electric plant and management of
waste, are all controlled by the AUA. Their operating expenses come almost
entirely from taxes paid by tourist operators in the park (restaurants and lodges)
and a visitor entrance fee. The AUA has 50 employees in Los Roques and
approximately 25 in Caracas.

In other respects, environmental regulation and administration of non-tourist
zones in the park fall under the jurisdiction of the National Parks Institute
(INPARQUES), the organization responsible for administration and management
of national parks in Venezuela. Aside from these two institutions (AUA and
INPARQUES), the Autonomous Fishery Service (SARPA), ascribed to the Ministry of
the Environment; regulates fishing activities in the archipelago with the help of
INPARQUES and the National Guard. 

INPARQUES has seven park guards and one superintendent (Ing. Jesús Durán)
that monitor and guard the park. Most of them are stationed at the Gran Roque
guard post. The Dos Mosquises post has one guard, and there are no permanent
personnel at the Crasquí post. The park has three boats with only one of them
working properly. The latter is an 18-foot boat with two 175 HP motors that was
donated by the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation (AECI). The AECI
also donated computer equipment to the office of INPARQUES in Gran Roque.
The headquarters in Gran Roque, Dos Mosquises guard post, and the boat
donated by the AECI are all equipped with radios.

The park has three access routes by sea, all duly outlined in navigation charts
and marked by beacons. There is one beacon on the northeastern limits in the
Boca de Sebastopol (11° 46' N, 66° 35' W), another at the southwestern tip close
to Dos Mosquises (11° 48' N, 66° 54' W), and the third located around the north
access in Gran Roque Island. The islands visited by tourists are well marked.
However, Integral Protection Zones and Managed Natural Environment Zones
visited by ParksWatch-Venezuela lacked signs or the existing signs were not
properly maintained.
