600 miles west of mainland Ecuador, you'll find an enchanted place where three ocean currents meet, volcanic activity shapes the land and the diversity of species inspired Darwin's theory of evolution. The Galapagos Islands are a global treasure under threat. Live and work on a permaculture farm in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island to help establish sustainable tourism alternatives. Snorkel with sea lions and observe blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas and giant tortoises. Practice your Spanish while expanding your view of the natural world on our Galapagos teen service trips.
