You can support our research and conservation efforts by sponsoring one of these species.

From invasive species and increased tourism levels, to climate change and illegal fishing; now, more than ever, the wildlife that inhabits the Galapagos Archipelago is under threat.

Our islands are a fragile place and the Charles Darwin Foundation is on the front lines to protect them. We are investing in research and science-based action that aim to protect the beauty of the Galapagos, not just for the locals and tourists, but also for the greater good of the planet.

You can make a difference. With your help, we can continue that work. By sponsoring a species you will help protect the ecosystems of the Galapagos and its unusual wildlife.


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.
