Since our founding in 1985, Galápagos Conservancy has been the only U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated exclusively to the long-term protection and restoration of the Galápagos Islands and its brilliant mosaic of life, including more than 2,000 species found nowhere else on Earth. As a leader in direct on-the-ground conservation action, we work with partners, including the Galápagos National Park Directorate, to save imperiled species, build a more sustainable society, and rewild the complex ecosystems of the Archipelago. Collectively, our members represent the largest source of private funding for conservation in the Islands.
Through direct on-the-ground conservation action and by offering impact grants to our partners throughout Galápagos, we invest our resources in the most urgent conservation and sustainability needs in the Islands.
The Galápagos Islands have experienced centuries of environmental degradation and have one of the highest rates of extinction in the world. We are working to reverse the trend by rewilding the Archipelago.
