Galapagos and Rainforest Service Project

Galapagos and Rainforest Service Project

From the Galapagos Islands to the lush rainforest, this program is the perfect combination of Ecuadorian culture, tradition, and community service.  You begin by living and working with the Tsa’Chila indigenous community on a local clean water project. Trek through the rainforest, participate in traditional ceremonies, and learn about how this community lost its clean water due to upstream fertilizers and big agriculture. Spend the second half of your week on the world-famous Galapagos.  Spanning 19 islands and housing iguanas, penguins, and sea lions, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the perfect location for our marine preservation project.

Highlights:

  • Live on a boat and study marine culture in the Galapagos
  • Participate in traditional Tsa’ Chila indigenous life
  • Earn 20 community service hours
