Be close to our animals and help save them. In our Volunteer Program Galapagos Islands, volunteers have the opportunity to preserve some of the world’s most uncommon wildlife.
There are several Galapagos volunteer opportunity programs, and you may review the various details of our programs and choose the one that best fits your interests or desires. Our project is located on a local farm with local people. The tasks vary from day to day and participants learn and show their skill in many ways. Volunteers introduce and place new plants, cut and bring vegetation to the tortoises that inhabit this area, and seed different kinds of fruits and vegetables.
