Galapagos Conservancy’s primary non-governmental partner in Galapagos is the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands (CDF). For more than two decades, GC and CDF have worked together to ensure that CDF’s critical role as technical advisory to the Government of Ecuador on the management of the Galapagos Islands and Galapagos Marine Reserve remain strong and uninterrupted.
GC has several projects with local organizations, including FUNDAR (Foundation for Alternative Responsible Development), to support citizen engagement in public policy and oversight, as well as educational projects on Santa Cruz Island to ensure full engagement of local youth in the important work of biodiversity conservation. We work with the Scalesia Foundation on creating new educational models for Galapagos students, and creating a long-term strategic plan for the model school Tomas de Berlanga.
We have been fortunate to work, via conservation projects, with World Wildlife Fund, the Peregrine Fund, and The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community (UK) on urban and rural planning measures on Santa Cruz and Floreana Islands.
