To conserve the unique biodiversity of Galapagos
through scientific research and related conserva-
tion actions, the Charles Darwin Foundation
(CDF), an international, nongovernmental,
nonprofit organization, was founded in 1959
under the auspices of UNESCO and the World
Conservation Union. The CDF is headquartered in
the Galapagos Islands, where it operates the
Charles Darwin Research Station (CDRS) in Puerto
Ayora on Santa Cruz Island.

The station’s dedicated team of scientists,
educators, volunteers, research students and
support staff from around the world work
together to study and protect this precious and
unique place.
