Join a unique 11-day opportunity to help conserve this amazing world treasure. The Galapagos Islands are home to a distinct mix of tropical and temperate environments as well as an unparalleled plant and animal ecology. The lack of natural predators has left many of the inhabitants fearless and friendly—meaning we can expect up-close encounters with giant tortoises, penguins and marine iguanas. This trip offers the chance to combine a love of travel and a passion for conservation. In partnership with Conservation Volunteers International Program, we give our time to assist with the preservation and protection of the animals who call this island home. Our adventure begins on the island of San Cristóbal and ends on the island of Baltra in the Galapagos. Explore vertical cliffs, sandy beaches, rocky shores, and coral reefs in the company of like-minded adventurers. With supervision from our extraordinary guides, our work provides assistance in the conservation and preservation of sea turtles and the Galapagos giant tortoise. This REI volunteer vacation is offered in partnership with Conservation Volunteers International Program. Discover additional details about the trip on the ConservationVIP website.
