Discovering Galapagos is an educational resource for use in the UK, Ecuador and Galapagos. The resource consists of two websites – one adapted for the UK audience with easy to use, downloadable curriculum linked resources and one adapted for delivery in the Galapagos Islands and mainland Ecuador. From pirates to plate tectonics and colonisation to evolution of species and their conservation, Discovering Galapagos will bring the Islands to life in your classroom.
Head to the Discovering Galapagos Citizen Science Portal for details of all our active citizen science projects that you can get involved with right now. Through involvement in these projects, your contribution will directly support the conservation of Galapagos and its unique wildlife.
'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. During the Covid-19 pandemic, when 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.
Our educational storybooks - 'Marti the Hammerhead Shark', 'Tessa the Giant Tortoise' and 'Alberto the Waved Albatross' - bring the conservation of the Galapagos Islands to life for young readers.
