Conservation

Help Conserve the Unique Galapagos Islands

When you visit the Galapagos, you travel through time, from their volcanic origins to the relatively recent era of human settlement. Many of the species here have evolved in virtual isolation, and without human interference they have never learned to fear mankind. You can therefore get remarkably close.

In the Galapagos, you will encounter up close the creatures which inspired Darwin and countless other naturalists to devise new theories. You also have prime case studies demonstrating the impact of introducing non native species, including humankind.

Today, these special, fragile islands are under threat due to a growing human population. Limited natural resources are being overused and invasive alien species and disease are causing stress to this isolated island system. Global climate change is also having an effect.
 
All is not lost, however. Galapagos Conservancy and other groups fund research and work with local communities to promote biodiversity and conservation. You can help by joining a sustainable tourism expedition or by volunteering to take part in research, carrying out practical tasks, or by developing and leading educational programmes in local schools.
