Conserving one of the world's great ecological wonders.

Our Mission

Galápagos Conservancy is the only U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated exclusively to the 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.

Our Pillars


Rewilding Galápagos

The Galápagos Islands have one of the highest rates of extinction in the world. We are working to reverse the trend by rewilding endangered species.


Saving Species

Invasive species, climate change, overfishing, and the impacts of human activity have altered the fabric of Galápagos’ ecosystems. Our efforts to restore land and marine habitats are critical to the long-term health of the Islands.


Achieving Sustainability

The residents of Galápagos play a pivotal role in shaping the future of their home. That’s why we are building the next generation of conservation educators and leaders in the Islands.
