Help us take one stop closer to a plastic-free Galapagos

With approximately 12 million tons of plastic debris entering the world’s oceans each year, plastic is causing detrimental impacts to many marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Even Galapagos isn't immune and needs our help in the fight against plastic pollution. The Islands are feeling the impact of the modern world like never before and plastics are threatening the fragile habitats and wildlife found there.

Working closely with the Galapagos Science Center, Galapagos National Park and other partners, we want to find out which species are most vulnerable to plastics, where the plastic is coming from, how best to clean up the coastlines of the Archipelago and the most effective way to change local and tourist behaviours. 

We now need your support to achieve a plastic-free Galapagos. You can help us make a real difference and be proud in the knowledge that you are helping to secure the future of the unique Galapagos wildlife.

Please donate today and help us take one step closer to a plastic-free Galapagos!
