What is Galapagos Verde 2050?

 

“Galapagos Verde 2050” is a multi-institutional and interdisciplinary project that contributes actively to the conservation of the Galapagos natural assets/capital and the well-being of it’s human population, using water-saving technologies as a tool to implement a successful ecological restoration model, along with sustainable agriculture practices that allow humans to live in harmony with nature.

The Galapagos Archipelago is one of the greatest biodiversity spots as well as a conservation reference worldwide. There are more than a thousand plant species registered on the islands, of which about two hundred are endemic species. The GV2050 project actively contributes/aims for the conservation of this natural heritage.

The GV2050 project keeps an interactive database through its own virtual platform and Android app, that allows keeping track of the current state of the project in every island and study site, obtaining a database with all the environmental and biological information.
