Galapagos Conservation Trust
Isolated 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and its resident wildlife and ecosystems are unique and fragile. With increasing human impact, they are also extremely vulnerable to change.
GCT is the only UK charity focussed solely on the conservation of the Galapagos Archipelago, one of the most ecologically important places in the world.
With nearly 25 years of experience, we partner with Ecuadorian authorities, NGOs, local communities and leading researchers to support impactful conservation programmes and deliver community outreach across the Archipelago.
As a charity GCT relies on the generosity of donors in the UK and abroad to raise money to support our work so that we can preserve Galapagos for generations to come.

over 80 Galapagos species are now listed as either critically endangered or endangered. Galapagos Conservation Trust is committed to the continued conservation of Galapagos and supports ongoing efforts to protect and conserve its wildlife and
