Galapagos Infinito seeks to bring the children of the islands closer to their environment
Boys and girls from Galapagos flocked to their marine reserve for 10 days and did a variety of nautical activities. Among them the coastal cleaning, snorkeling, surfing, sailing and much more.
The pandemic did not prevent boys and girls from 11 to 12 years old from knowing and exploring Galapagos through various activities.
The participants of the Gálapagos Infinito program went on sailing trips, coastal cleaning, surf classes, scuba diving and even talked with astronauts.
Norman Gray, president of the Galapagos Governing Council, indicated that this program “is an opportunity to accompany children who feel integrated into their community and, above all, to their natural heritage.”
The population of Galapagos has the privilege of living surrounded by a national park and a marine reserve that not all islanders know about. Therefore, this initiative seeks to bring them closer to their environment so that they value and preserve it.
The Galapagos Infinito program included moments of reflection and reconnection with its natural environment.
This experiential education project is possible thanks to a public – private alliance of the Galapagos Government Council and the Nada Educando Foundation.
