Darwin Animal Doctors

Darwin Animal Doctors is the ONLY full service, full-time veterinary hospital project in Galapagos. They treat all animals of Galapagos, both introduced animals or wildlife, every day. They are also the only organization teaching comprehensive humane conservation education in Galapagos public schools every single week, by invitation of the government.

How We Helped

LUSH funds went to support an education initiative in the Galapagos. The objectives of the Santa Cruz Humane Education and Learning Project (Santa Cruz HELP) are to:

  • Implement a humane educational curriculum in Santa Cruz schools to teach responsible animal care and environmental stewardship.
  • Establish a volunteer program to aid in improving teaching methods in schools, in order to help children retain what they learn through the program.
