About us


The Galapagos Conservation Trust (GCT) is the only UK registered charity to focus exclusively on the conservation and sustainability of the Galapagos Archipelago. Launched in 1995 at the Royal Society, we have supported a vast array of projects in Galapagos.

In 2016, we updated our vision to embrace the two major areas of science and communication, and education and sustainability as focal points for our work. This vision promotes the view that the challenges faced by the Galapagos Archipelago are multi-faceted and can best be addressed using a holistic approach.

By raising funds and awareness in the UK we are able to support conservation projects in Galapagos, helping to contribute to the overall management of this unique ecosystem. We work with a wide range of delivery partners, both in Galapagos and the UK, which helps us to achieve maximum positive impact in our efforts to conserve the Islands.

Galapagos Conservation Trust is a UK registered charity (number 1043470) and is registered with the Fundraising Regulator.
