The principal aim of the Galapagos conservation project is to devise environmentally friendly initiatives and activities that encourage collaboration between volunteers and local people and persuade islanders to adopt environmentally sustainable practices. The Galapagos conservation work runs on an organic farm whose purpose is to systematically produce eco-friendly organic foods based on the norms of quality and sustainability. These organic foods will substitute the produce that is imported weekly from mainland Ecuador, which brings with it insects and illnesses from the mainland. These locally grown organic foods can sustain the local population. In particular, this project seeks to create a sustainable future for visitors and islanders alike. Be an integral part of this process!
Volunteers are essential to the success of this project. There is little to no government support for small, local initiatives such as this Organic Farm, and the Coordinator cannot complete the farm’s objectives without the physical and financial support of volunteers. The farm encourages everyone to offer support and make the difference by contributing to the changes taking place at the farm. Ecuador Volunteer invites volunteers to come, work, explore, and create new projects according to their own interests and specialties.
