Our Story

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.

Our Impact

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.

Rewilding Galápagos

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.

Saving Species

Invasive species, climate change, overfishing, and the impacts of human activity have altered the fabric of Galápagos' ecosystems and put hundreds of species on the path to extinction. Our efforts to restore terrestrial and marine habitats are critical to the long-term health of the Islands.
