A Guide to Volunteering in the Galapagos
Interested in the idea of going to volunteer around the world? Looking for a unique and special location untouched by humans and globalisation? Consider the Galapagos as your destination. There are lots of rewarding ways to help here including education, conservation and community projects.
Short and long term projects are available to join all year round. Some companies offer combo experiences where you can volunteer in Ecuador and the Galapagos, this is a great way to see more of the region and enjoy a trip like no other.
Types of Projects
There are lots of different options available including:
- Charles Darwin Foundation
- Marine conservation
- Teaching and education
On some projects you will support a team of dedicated conservation experts and scientists, as they monitor wildlife, collect data and build a management strategy for the ecosystem. There are animal rescue centre programs where you can help at wildlife reserves and rehabilitation centres working with animals. You can get your hands on feeding and helping tortoises and other exotic animals. This is a very memorable experience.
