Launched in 1995 at the Royal Society, the Galapagos Conservation Trust has supported a vast array of projects in Galapagos, including pioneering projects across science, education and culture and raising awareness of Galapagos in the UK. The Trust strives to ensure the Galapagos archipelago is protected into the future for the benefit of its unique wildlife and for humankind.
