Galapagos Conservation Trust (GCT) is the only UK registered charity focussed solely on the conservation of one of the most unique and ecologically important, but vulnerable, areas in the world, the Galapagos Islands. With over 21 years of experience, we partner with Ecuadorian authorities, NGOs, local communities and leading researchers both in Galapagos and the UK to support impactful Science & Conservation programmes and deliver community outreach across the Archipelago through our Education & Sustainability programme. By raising funds and awareness in the UK, we are able to support and deliver conservation and education projects in Galapagos, helping to contribute to the overall management of this unique ecosystem and helping us to achieve maximum positive impact in our efforts to conserve the Islands.
