Endemic Gardens at GSC
Going Even Greener… Literally!
In sync with our ongoing mission and responsibility of conserving the environment, the GSC is thrilled to be able to collaborate with likeminded individuals and groups. So far four endemic gardens have been planted by the USFQ Eco Club called Mar y Tierra .These students have created their own nonprofit organization, with the mission to create positive change with regard to the conservation of the environment of San Cristobal and the Galápagos.
Their objectives are to raise awareness about the importance of caring for the flora, fauna, research sustainable development alternatives and put them into practice.
They promote activities involving citizens working with the theory of teaching and motivating through example while also using information from scientific research to guide their projects.
The proceeds of certain activities, like these endemic gardens, provide sustainability for the clubs existence and allows them to continue to grow and strengthen their positive impact on the community and the environment.
