The Galapagos Conservation Trust (GCT) was established in 1995 as a UK registered charity (No. 1043470) and a company limited by guarantee (No. 3004112).
Our vision is of the Galapagos Archipelago conserved and sustained in perpetuity for the benefit of its unique wildlife on land and at sea, and for humankind, both locally and worldwide.
GCT promotes conservation and sustainability in the Galapagos Archipelago, through partnership programmes focused on science, education and culture, both in the Islands themselves and through links with the United Kingdom.
