Protecting Biodiversity in the
Galapagos Islands

FY20 Galapagos SR Thumb.PNG

Season Highlights

The Galapagos Islands are a spectacular natural laboratory, renowned for their endemic biodiversity. Marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, giant tortoises: there is only one Galapagos. 


But much of the unique wildlife in the archipelago is under threat. Invasive species have ravaged wildlife habitat and a rapidly changing climate is further disrupting the natural systems that wildlife relies upon for survival.


In partnership with the Galapagos National Park, EPI’s programs provide local Galapagueño students an opportunity to engage in the critical conservation efforts in their own backyard. By helping scientists and preserving vulnerable ecosystems, EPI inspires these students to protect these islands long into the future.

the Fieldwork

EPI provides unique opportunities for alumni and other members of the community to participate in local conservation efforts in the Galapagos Islands.


Alumni facilitate and lead community-based projects, beach clean-ups, awareness campaigns, festivals, field trips, collaborations with local and international scientists, and more. 

Meet some of our alumni and the wildlife they're working to protect.
