Volunteering at the Charles Darwin Research Station
In 1971 the Charles Darwin Foundation began the National and International Volunteer Program. Volunteers play a very important role in the CDF's objectives. They are selected on the basis of their knowledge and experience, which must be related to the Station's needs and activities.
Primarily the program is designed to collaborate with either the training of students in biology and conservation science or those who want to improve their skills through field experience in Galapagos. The students have the opportunity to attend lectures given by important scientists visiting the Research Station each month, and they have the opportunity to give their own talks in which they can talk about their work as volunteers.
There are also occasional opportunities for experienced professionals to work with the CDF on specific projects. Such projects are more likely to be associated with management, administration and strategic planning.
There are many opportunities to contribute to CDF's work through the Volunteer Programs:
* Ecuadorian volunteers
* International volunteers
