The 2021 Membership Challenge is of historic importance. We will soon launch the first expedition to Fernandina in the hopes of finding a mate for Fernanda, but we need your support. Your donation will be doubled by a generous donor to help reach our $120,000 goal!
Galapagos Conservancy’s primary non-governmental partner in Galapagos is the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands (CDF). For more than three 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 also partners with Island Conservation in efforts to protect the native flora and fauna of Galapagos from the harmful impacts of invasive species.
GC has several educational projects on Santa Cruz Island to ensure full engagement of local youth in the important work of biodiversity conservation and to train the hundreds of K-12 teachers working across the Archipelago. 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 Tomás de Berlanga.
