About the Galapagos Conservation Trust
The Galapagos Conservation Trust is the only UK registered charity to focus exclusively on the conservation and sustainability of the Galapagos archipelago.
Launched in 1995 at the Royal Society, the Galapagos Conservation Trust has supported a vast array of projects in Galapagos, including pioneering projects across science, education and culture and raising awareness of Galapagos in the UK. The Trust strives to ensure the Galapagos archipelago is protected into the future for the benefit of its unique wildlife and for humankind.
Whether you have already visited the Galapagos, or are preparing for your trip to the extraordinary archipelago (the very first UNESCO World Heritage Site) we recommend you sign up to receive the Galapagos Conservation Trust newsletter, where you can learn more about the Galapagos Islands and the Trust’s great work.
