Galápagos Verde 2050

GV2050 UMA

With funds of the COmON Foundation, the Galápagos Verde 2050 Project (GV2050) aims to actively contribute to the conservation of the natural capital of the archipelago and the well-being of its human population. This is achieved through two primary components of research: ecological restoration and sustainable agricultural practices, using water-saving technologies as the primary tools.

The Galapagos Verde 2050 program carries out ecological restoration of degraded areas of grain mines and abandoned garbage dumps, using native and endemic species on the Baltra, Floreana, Isabela, San Cristóbal, and Santa Cruz islands.

“In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught.” Baba Dioum, 1968
