ECOLOGICAL PROJECT EG-EC19 IN ECUADOR

Volunteer Project in Ecuador

EG-EC19

Description:

This beautiful project at the Galapagos Islands has the main goal to improve the sustainability of the islands trough environmental, community and social initiatives. In contradiction to most volunteer programs on the Galapagos, this organization does not focus on environment only, but also on the communities living on the islands, through offering education and mentoring.

Volunteers have shown to be of great use for the project, through starting reforestations with the projectís staff. Furthermore, volunteers collaborate with educational programs to promote environmental issues among youngsters living on the islands and to motivate the plantation of local vegetation rather than introduced vegetation. Participating in this project and working with the local community could be a unique and beautiful way to explore the Galapagos and discover its wildlife.
