Galapagos Conservancy Canada (GCC) began as the Charles Darwin Foundation of Canada (CDFCanada) in 2001. In 2013 the CDFCanada board decided that the new name “Galapagos Conservancy Canada” better reflected our mission to raise funds in Canada for conservation and science in the Galapagos Islands. In February of 2014 the name change was approved by Revenue Canada and Industry Canada and GCC looks forward to continuing our original mission.

Galapagos Conservancy Canada has three main mandates (see link for more details): Save the Floreana Mockingbird from Extinction; Assess the Galapagos Green Turtle Population; Restore Pinta Island. We are are part of the Friends of Galapagos network (see link). Between 2008 and 2011 we were able to send over $45,000 to support these mandates.
