  • Call for project proposals

    The Association Friends of the Galápagos Islands Switzerland was founded in 1984 with the aim of
    protecting the ecosystem of the Galápagos Islands, preserving it in the long term, and helping to finance
    research projects for the conservation of the islands. The association also aims to raise
    awareness of the uniqueness of the Galápagos Islands among the local population through comprehensive
    information and to encourage people to contribute to nature conservation.

    Over the last 30 years, thanks to our members and donors, our association has been able to support important long-term projects on the archipelago and thus contribute to the research and protection of the flora and fauna on the islands.

We especially encourage young researchers from Galapagos or Ecuador to submit project proposals to us as well.
