Discovering Galapagos

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.

Marti the Hammerhead Shark

'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.
