dc.description.abstractGalápagos Verde 2050 is a large scale and widespread conservation project that began in January of 2014 through the Charles Darwin Research Station. The two goals of the project include restoring degraded ecosystems, and teaching citizens of the Galápagos Islands sustainable farming techniques. These goals are achieved by planting endemic and native vegetation while applying a wide variety of water saving technologies. The project is being implemented in three distinct phases with each phase addressing a specific group of islands. As of 2018, 72 species have been planted over 71 sites across the archipelago. Since Galápagos Verde 2050’s inception, it has been executed by a diverse group of individuals, ranging from professional biologists to both international and local volunteers.en_US
