About Us

The mission of Galapagos Conservancy is to protect the unique biodiversity and ecosystems of Galapagos by supporting research and management, informing public policy, and building a sustainable society. Galapagos Conservancy believes in the power of collaboration, favoring investments in local and national organizations that have the authority and responsibility for protecting this extraordinary world treasure. By building partnerships and leveraging already existing capacities within Galapagos organizations, we can enhance what already exists to achieve greater success. Our unique relationship with the Government of Ecuador ensures that our institutional mission and objectives are completely aligned with Ecuador’s vision for the archipelago and its residents.
