Challenge Events

Challenge events are a great way to get involved with us by donating your time and effort, and assisting us in the conservation of the Galapagos Archipelago. We are working in partnership with Discover Adventure but you can also organise your own event.

How you can get involved with Discover Adventure

Our first organised walks will be along the ancient Jurassic coastline in Dorset, south of England on 09 – 11 June 2017  and 15 – 17 September 2017. This scenic walk is a great challenge for all ages. Get your walking boots ready and support us out in the beautiful English countryside.

Why the Jurassic coast?

The Jurassic coastline plays an important part in Darwin’s theory of evolution. In 1811, 12-year-old Mary Anning discovered the first ever fossil of an Ichthyosaurus in Lyme Regis. A decade later she went on to find the skeleton of a Plesiosaurus. This strange, fossilised creature was so unlike any modern creature ever seen and scientists were forced to conclude that extinction was a possible natural phenomenon. This discovery by Anning reinforced Charles Darwin’s widely criticised theory of natural selection, helping form the basis of modern day science.
