One of the more unique foundations workign on the conservation and preservation of the islands is Darwin Animal Doctors. This is a great program that provides veterinary care for the animals of the Galapagos Islands. Their mission is to provide professional and comprehensive veterinary clinics for the animals of the Galapagos Islands, and to preserve the archipelago’s extraordinary biodiversity by humanely limiting the populations of domestic animals.
The Darwin Animals Doctors have two full time clinics one on San Cristobal and one on Santa Cruz where they provide free veteniary services to the domestic animals of the Galapagos. Their work helps to prevent the spread of disease as well as to spade and neuter animals which helps to prevent unwanted animals and a population of feral cats and dogs.
Darwin Animal Doctors is a non profit organization that can use help either by donations to help with the purchase of equipment or to hire more staff at their clinics. They also accept used equipment from Vetenary Clinics that are upgrading equipment and donations of time from vets, veterinary technicians or vet students.
