At Galapagos Conservation Trust, we believe that education is key to inspiring future generations to care and protect for the environment. During these uncertain times, many parents and carers took on the challenge of teaching children from home, but we wanted to help!
Discovering Galapagos Educational Resources
We have a range of student and teacher resources available on our Discovering Galapagos website. These are tailored to different age groups and will inspire and engage children with the wonders of Galapagos to teach them about a range of topics.
Discovering Galapagos is an educational resource available both in English and Spanish designed for use in the UK, Ecuador, and Galapagos. It was designed for teachers to deliver lessons with strong links to the UK science and geography curriculum. However, Discovering Galapagos is ideal as a highly relevant and reliable resource for homeschooling across KS2, KS3, KS4, and beyond. You can find out more about the Discovering Galapagos project here.
Marti the Hammerhead Shark Educational Resources
We believe that storytelling is a fantastic way to inspire young people about the wonders of the natural world. Using scientific research on the migration journeys of hammerheads and other marine species, we developed the Marti the Hammerhead Shark: A Galapagos Journey storybook. As many students were studying from home, we launched a free six-part guided reading session for teachers, parents and carers based on the storybook.

Plastic Pollution Free Galapagos Educational Resources
Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing issues facing marine wildlife around the world. To raise awareness of this issue, we developed a free six-part activity session for teachers, parents and carers to do with their children and students. The downloadable pack brings our oceans to life and will inspire you to make them a safer place for marine life. You can access these excellent resources via this link.
