We open our doors to celebrate 62 years of CDF life

The Charles Darwin Foundation (CDF) is preparing to welcome the Galapagos community to its 2021 Open House to commemorate our 62 years of institutional life. The Open House will have limited capacity and will be in compliance with all the biosecurity measures that we must still maintain. The projects being carried out at the Charles Darwin Research Station (CDRS) will be presented at this event that will take place on July 27th at 8:00 AM. The objective is to create a space for interaction with the community to share our research results and scientific knowledge in a friendly and fun environment.
