Cheap way to see Galapagos - Volunteer Answered
I am assisting locals from Galapagos with creating a volunteer program that supports conserving the environment and allowing people to see the Galapagos in a more sustainable way.
We are really geared to people similar to Instructables that are crafty. For those that dont know, Galapagos has a real problem with invasive species changing the natural habitat and threating the unique animals. As a volunteer you will work between erradicating introduced plant species (i.e. getting out any rage with a machette), growing and transporting new native species (testing out how green your thumb is) and introducing green technologies to the Hacienda (we are already composting and using the energy produced by wind power). Volunteers can stay for as little as one week or up to 3 months.
No particular skills are needed but we would love to have people that can help to introduce new green technologies.

They are wonderful people and its a wonderful place. We hope you can assist!
