About Galapagos sea lions

Due to its isolation, the Galapagos islands is home to just six mammal species, including the Galapagos sea lion. This iconic species is endemic to the Archipelago, meaning you can only see them in Galapagos. Evolving in isolation has meant they show reduced fear of humans and are famous for their inquisitive nature. Readily spotted slumped on benches or showing off their agility in the water, they are a favourite amongst tourists and locals.

How an adoption helps

In spite of this, their numbers are declining due to climate change, pollution and invasive species. These threats, combined with their isolated population, means they are listed as Endangered on the IUCN’s Red List of Endangered Species. By adopting a Galapagos sea lion today, you can learn about this animal, whilst protecting them and other Galapagos species. We work on a range of projects that are helping protect Galapagos sea lions. This includes our Plastic Pollution Free Galapagos programme, which seeks to make the Islands the first plastic pollution free Archipelago in the world. As part of this project, we aim to find out how plastics are affecting marine species, including Galapagos sea lions. 

The adoption pack includes a fact file full of information on this species, a personalised certificate and a soft toy. If we have the permission, the recipient will also receive species specific adoption emails and email updates via our monthly e-Newsletter about the conservation work we are doing in Galapagos.
