The Charles Darwin Foundation's (CDF) 62nd anniversary Open House was a total success. Approximately 500 people visited the Research Station's facilities to learn more about the ongoing projects that contribute to the Galapagos conservation.

Between games and dynamic explanations, visitors learned about our scientific research in both marine and terrestrial spheres.

The tour of the CDRS was also shared virtually through Facebook live to reach each of our followers who for some reason could not visit us in person.

Visitors were pleased with the work that CDF has been carrying out for more than 62 years, with a mission to provide knowledge and support through scientific research and complementary actions to ensure the conservation of the environment and biodiversity of the Galapagos Archipelago.
