Sixty years ago, the Galapagos National Park was created as one of the most ambitious and important conservation endeavors in human history. This creation of the Park, combined with its later designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, resulted in the protection of 97% of the Galapagos Islands and set the precedent for conservation on a global scale. Over the past six decades, the dedicated men and women of the Galapagos National Park Directorate have worked tirelessly to safeguard this remarkable ecosystem and its astonishing wildlife. For more than 30 of those years, the work of the Park has been funded, supported, and made possible, in part, by Galapagos Conservancy and our caring community.

In honor of the Galapagos National Park’s 60th anniversary, we reached out to our Friends of Galapagos with a request for support and invited them to share congratulatory and inspirational notes, thanking the Park for its years of hard work in service to these majestic islands. We commemorate the Park’s milestone with this special web page, listing an impressive roster of more than 200 GC members who chose to honor the Park once again, along with a selection of their encouraging words. (An additional 83 members chose to remain anonymous and are not listed here.)
