Gallivanting in the Galapagos
If you understand the notion of "you get what you give"' in life, you want to stock up your karma credits or you simply want to spend some time in one of the most amazing places on earth – the Galapagos Islands – read on. The isolated Galapagos Islands are a World Heritage sanctuary and home to a host of weird and wonderful creatures… nearly a quarter of which are endemic.
Blue-footed, red-footed, and masked boobies (they are birds boys!) abound as do giant Galapagos tortoises, dolphins, whales, seals, turtles and land and marine iguanas. The best bit is most of these animals have no instinctive fear of man due to the remote location of the archipelago some 1000km's off the coast of Ecuador so you can get up close to these beautiful creatures... ever surfed with seals??
With i-to-i you'll be working on a biological station where the aim is to help preserve the natural habitat of the island and introduce new organic farming methods to the islanders. Depending on the station's needs, your conservation work on the Galapagos Islands may include helping plant new crops, assisting in light building activities, or helping maintain the trails around the island. Plus local staff will lead you on various hikes to nearby lagoons, forests, beaches and local villages to explain the ecological and human dynamics of Galapagos.
