GALAPAGOS CONSERVANCY’S MISSION

The mission of Galapagos Conservancy is to advance and support the conservation of the unique biodiversity and ecosystems of Galapagos through directed research, conservation management, informed public policy, and building a sustainable society.

HISTORY

Galapagos Conservancy (GC) is the only US organization focused exclusively on protecting the unique ecosystems and biological integrity of the Galapagos archipelago. For more than 30 years, GC has worked with Galapagos-based, national, and international organizations and individuals to support the scientific research needed for policy, decision making, and conservation management — as well as to provide financial resources to key management institutions working in Galapagos to help ensure that they remain strong and effective.

GC’s single focus has allowed the organization to target its communications, funding, and technical resources to projects specific to Galapagos biodiversity conservation, and to work with organizations and individuals whose vision and mission are aligned with these goals.
