Ecuador is a country in northwestern South America that is one of the most environmentally diverse in the world. It is also home to the famous Galapagos Islands, an archipelago of volcanic islands. Two major centres of population and commerce are the vibrant port city of Guayaquil and Quito, located in the Andean highlands.
The challenge of our volunteer actions in Ecuador is partly to preserve the ecosystem of the Galapagos archipelago. Volunteering opportunities in Ecuador also entail an educational project in Don Juan and animal protection programs. Some of these programs are the turtle protection program, whale protection program, and animal protection program in the Amazon.
