Our projects aim to find mechanisms to improve the protection of key terrestrial and marine ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands, as models for other oceanic islands and ecological vulnerable areas. We understand that the Galapagos is under a vast number of anthropogenic pressures, but also recognize that local populations are key to improving management and sustainability. We work closely with the Galapagos National Park and local governments to advance and improve management actions.

Our projects include topics in:

  • Endangered Species
  • Wildlife Veterinary
  • Agroecology
  • Protected Areas Spatial Planning

Understanding marine iguanas
