Galapagos Species Checklist

In our Galapagos Species List we openly share the information from the Charles Darwin Research Station Natural History Collections database, curated by researchers from all over the world during several decades.

To look for information on a species, you can search it by its common or scientific name, filter by the IUCN Red List categories, or generate a list of all the species included in one of our Species Checklists. A click on the species name will take you to its page, where you will find information about its ecology, distribution, taxonomy, and more.


The mission of the Charles Darwin Foundation and its Research Station is to tackle the greatest threats and challenges to Galapagos through scientific research and conservation action, in order to safeguard one of the world’s most important natural treasures.
