Santa Cruz Eco Ranch

Volunteers will be staying in island of Santa Cruz , one of the Galápagos Island. Volunteers will be living in a ranch where the famous giant tortoises live in their natural habitat. The community of the ranch would love to receive the help from volunteers to give tourists information about the ranch, help with their little shop and helping them with daily tasks around the property.

Santa Cruz Eco Ranch

USD 600 per person

A Typical Day While Volunteering :

Volunteers will work 5 days a week depending on the period you’re volunteering and the needs of the ranch. Daily work could include any of the following activities: welcoming tourists, raising awareness and explaining why it is so important to preserve the domain, water the plants, basic construction and trail maintenance. There is no typical day or script to follow. Remember, volunteers are serving in the developing world where conditions can change in an instant. We expect volunteers to contribute wherever the need arises, even if it means being involved in activities they were not expecting to work in. Being able to adapt, adjust and fit in is challenging, but also what makes international volunteering so special.

Why This Volunteer Work Project is Important :

The Galapagos Islands is one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet, and the local people have finally started to take care of this  biodiversity treasure. The delicate ecological balance of the reserve faces serious threats from exotic and invasive species.
