Charlotte's volunteer program on the Galapagos Islands
Volunteer Work on Galapagos Islands / Ecuador 2019
... Galapagos is synonymous with nature conservation, environmental protection, bio-diversity, sustainability, ecotourism with a quite unstable balance. The islands are located far away in the Pacific, about 1000 km off the coast of South America and pretty much on the equator. With the support of volunteers the tasks of the project are mastered. These include the eradication of invasive plants (the worst of which are blackberries and guava) and afforestation with indigenous trees, as well as community support and operations on the surrounding farms. In addition, a Hippo therapy is offered to help disabled children. An additional part of the work is to sporadically rid the beaches of waste.
