About the competition
Recognising the Galápagos archipelago as one of the most ecologically important places in the world, the Galapagos Conservation Trust (GCT) works with local communities to protect the unique biodiversity of the islands.
Its annual photography competition celebrates the beauty of the archipelago, while raising awareness of the environmental issues faced by its native animals.
Winning and shortlisted images will be featured in the GCT’s 2020 calendar, and will be displayed at the Royal Geographical Society for Galápagos Day on 30 October 2019.
Wildlife expert Mark Carwardine will host the day, and will be joined by speakers discussing ever-pressing issues faced by the archipelago, including plastic pollution, reintroduction of species such as the Galápagos land iguana, and the impact of invasive species.
