Spirit of Big Five

Fundacion Galapagos

Fundacion Galapagos

To help protect the endangered ecosystem in the Galapagos Islands, the Fundación Galapagos conducts a variety of conservation projects from coastal clean-up to education to recycling of solid waste in one of the world’s most fragile ecosystems.

The Center for Recycling of Solid Waste: Fabricio Valverde Environmental Park, is a much-needed recycling facility on Santa Cruz Island, the first of its kind in the Galapagos.  In addition to the recycling center, Fundacion Galapagos is involved in community education and training oriented towards sustainable development.

In collaboration with our partners at Metropolitan Touring, Big Five provides funding to assist with its on-going development and operation and is a Platinum Sponsor for the facility.
