Farewell Freda!


Last week our Grants and Contracts Manager, Freda Chapman, retired. We wish Freda all the best in her new endeavors and want to thank her for all the years of hard work and dedication to the protection and conservation of Galapagos.

Freda got involved with the Charles Darwin Research Station helping as a volunteer, and then worked for over a decade managing our Grants Program. She lived in Galapagos for many years, truly becoming part of the community and with her heart is in the Islands.


Freda was a key player of our team in preparing fundamental fund raising proposals to uplift the Charles Darwin Foundation, especially during challenging times in 2014.


Freda has gone above and beyond all these years through her work for our organization and we will be always grateful. You will surely be missed by all of us. Thank you and hope to see you soon back in Ecuador! The best wishes from all of us at the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands.
