To address the current challenges facing the Galapagos Islands such as population growth, resource conflict, and economic development, a collaborative partnership has been created between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA and the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador. The partnership is designed to foster research, education, and outreach programs in the islands, with the larger goals of advancing conservation efforts in the Galapagos and promoting better understanding of ecologically sensitive and protected areas worldwide.

The Center for Galapagos Studies coordinates UNC’s Galapagos-related research, teaching, and outreach activities in Chapel Hill and at the joint UNC/USFQ Galapagos Science Center located on San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos Archipelago.
