Charles Darwin Research Station

The Research Station has carried out a vast range of activities and made remarkable achievements, from research into land and marine lives and ecology to activities more directly related to the conservation of the Islands' nature, including the protection and propagation of then-endangered elephant tortoises.

Charles Darwin Research Station attests to harmonious coexistence with the nature on the volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, while combining scientific research on the evolution of life forms on earth and environmental protection.

The Darwin Station provides:

* Information and technical assistance for the Galapagos National Park Service and other branches of the government of Ecuador.

* Support for resident and visiting scientists who work in Galapagos.

* Environmental education for island communities and schools and for the visitors that come to Galapagos each year.

* Hands-on training in science, education, and conservation for Ecuadorian university students who participate in the Darwin Station's volunteer and scholarship programs.
