Conservation volunteering in the Galapagos islands

Our conservation volunteering project in the Galapagos Islands is based on San Cristobal. Here, you live in harmony with nature, and you meet all kind of animals: giant tortoises (including newborns), marine iguanas, sea lions, a thousand species of tropical fish, pelicans, flamingos, and many other species of birds.
In these volcanic islands it’s summer all year round, landscapes range from harsh lunar to the colorful and picturesque: white sandy beaches and a crystalline sea in all possible shadows of blue, lava rocks, and cacti, along with enchanting fishing villages.
