We are pleased to present the Charles Darwin Foundation (CDF) membership programme. Never previously made available to the public, this exclusive programme offers you a unique opportunity to experience the Galapagos Islands, and to witness the expertise of the archipelago’s leading scientific organization for yourself.
The Charles Darwin Foundation has worked tirelessly since 1959 to protect this UNESCO World Heritage Site. As an official adviser to the Government of Ecuador, its work directly impacts decision-making on the archipelago. The Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz is the operating arm of the Charles Darwin Foundation and a place where local and international staff members conduct scientific research to combat threats to the Islands’ unique biodiversity. Throughout its history, the organization has relied on private funding.
It is now possible to get behind-the-scenes access that previously only scientific staff members enjoyed. By pledging USD 1,000 to the Charles Darwin Foundation, you can join the exclusive circle of benefactors and stay in touch with front-line developments. You will receive the following:
