Description

Ecuador has been named by ecologists as one of the world’s “megadiversity hotspots” and is one of the most species-rich countries on earth. The Galapagos Islands are 1000km (621mi) off Ecuador’s Pacific coast. Due to their isolation, the islands are home to many unique species of flora and fauna. This uniquely evolved wildlife is famous for helping Charles Darwin formulate his theory of evolution.

Projects Abroad works on the island of San Cristobal in the Galapagos archipelago. Conservation volunteers live in the town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and work closely with the Galapagos National Park.

Our overall aim in this projects is to contribute to the conservation and preservation of the unique and abundant marine and terrestrial ecosystems through much-needed research and practical, hands-on work. Daily activities include monitoring sea lion, marine iguana, and seabird populations around the island.
