#TravelChoice Stories: Ecotourism in the Galapagos

How to Take a More Sustainable Tour of the Galapagos Islands

The best type of tour is with the smaller vessels that are licensed to operate live-aboard tours. The live-aboard vessels all have their itineraries managed by the Park Service and they are for the most part responsible companies that take their environmental commitment seriously.


Support Galapagos Conservation Scholarships to Train Environmental Leaders

“Developing critical-thinking skills and a conservation ethic along with knowledge of the problems that threaten the sustainability of the islands are among the main objectives of the training program” – Santiago Dunn, President, Ecoventura


Last Chance Tourism? Vanishing Destinations and Tourism’s Roles in Saving Them

"Galápagos remains, in many ways, as pure and dramatic as it was when Charles Darwin saw the place in the mid nineteenth century and scribbles excitedly in his journal about how unique and powerful he found the islands… But the Galápagos are islands in reluctant transition." (from Disappearing Destinations, Galápagos, Ecuador)
