Galapagos Biodiversity

All photos celebrating the special beauty of Galapagos wildlife are most welcome. Many of the native species are endangered, like all land snails, as well as some Darwin Finches and the Vermilion Flycatcher on Santa Cruz. In addition, shots of introduced plants and animals are also of great interest. Some of these introduced species are invasive, and may be spreading and threatening native species. - The distribution of all species, native and introduced, is of great interest. Therefore, be as precise as possible when logging in the place and time of your spotting. Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos specialists will participate in this mission and will comment.

The objective of this mission undertaken by the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos is to celebrate all the extraordinary plant and animal species found on the Galapagos and to help protect them within their habitats. Knowing where and when these species are spotted contributes to the knowledge needed to design conservation strategies and activities. So, the core purpose is: appreciate and protect! El objetivo central es: apreciar y proteger! – Nos comunicamos en ingles y en español.
