Environmental Conservation on the Galapagos Islands

Description

Volunteer with us and help us protect some of the rarest and wildest species of flora and fauna in the world.

Due to its remote location, the Galapagos does not have access to the same level of public care and social institutions that are available on the mainland. There is therefore a huge demand for social and community support. 

This project reaches out and accelerates environmental accomplishments on the island as well as green growth, restoring endemic forests while protecting vulnerable farmers from invasive species. It provides the community with improved access to necessities such as water, therapy, education, and intercultural exchanges of ideas, values, and love for our planet.

  • Cultivating and planting seedlings
  • Organic gardening.
  • Helping farmers plant native and endemic vegetation.
  • Construction work.

Galapagos is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will live in harmony with amazing animals such as sea lions, sea turtles, galapagos, sharks, manta rays and sea birds to name a few. 

  • Learn how to rehabilitate areas of land so that Galapagos tortoises can be reintroduced and survive.
