About

Volunteer on a range of environmental and community development projects on Isabela island, Galapagos. Join a dynamic team of volunteers and local staff while giving back to the community in the Galapagos islands. This Galapagos volunteer programme forms part of a wider comprehensive approach to developmental aid in Galapagos. Volunteers in Galapagos can help to care for giant tortoises, reforest local areas, protect endemic wildlife, teach English to children, or work in the local hospital. During your free time you can snorkel with penguins and sea lions, and enjoy living in a town filled with friendly locals and active volcanoes. There is much to learn and discover as a volunteer in Galapagos, where volunteers can explore the natural scenery of the islands and get immersed in the local community, while gaining cross-cultural experiences and building valuable skills.

You can volunteer in Galapagos for between 2 and 12 weeks, and we have places available throughout the year.

Individuals, groups and students are all welcome.
