how we can protect, preserve
and restore the Galapagos Islands together
Charles Darwin
a living laboratory

It is only in such a remarkable archipelago, that we are able to become first hand witnesses to what captivated Charles Darwin to form a new understanding of the origins of life.

Dragons that dive to over 30 feet beneath the waves in search for food, flightless birds that swim and fish underwater like bullet torpedo's and prehistoric giant tortoises with elephant-like feet that once roamed the earth with dinosaurs, are just a small fraction of the nearly 9,000 species, most found nowhere else in the world, that make the Galapagos Islands a haven for life.

There is no doubt, the archipelago is a living laboratory for scientists and naturalists and should be preserved for future generations.

Today, one species holds the key to protecting and preserving our world. We are that species.

- Eduardo Diez Gangotena Co-Founder of Free World United

Charles Darwin
the world’s most treasured islands

Life here is unlike anything I have ever seen. We cannot, but be amazed, by the hundreds of endemic species that inhabit the islands and be utterly marveled by their fearlessness towards human beings. These islands trully are 'the last remaining wildlife sanctuary' as Jacques Cousteau described them.

There is a mysterious, but facinating serenity that can be sensed while navigating these waters; observing the countless species that have, for thousands of years, evolved and adapted making these treacherous lands, with extremely limited resources, their home.

In only a weeks time frame, we realize that we are part of the priviledged few to experience this natural wonderland of our world and that we must do everything within our power to help preserve and protect this pristine corner of our planet.

Join our efforts on a simple mission.

threats to this natural paradise

The remoteness of the Galapagos make them a travelers paradise, yet, they are faced by troubling issues that threaten their wildlife and ecosystem.

Despite being granted status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Galapagos face an onslaught of man made threats which include illegal fishing (in what is the second largest marine reserve in the world), unsustainable immigration to the islands from a variety of foreign species, an increase in population, exploding tourism and global warming. Many of these issues need attention and, speaking with experts on the matters, some of them have even worsen.

Free World United (FWU), an apparel company born in the Galapagos Islands, is committed to social responsibility and focused on the sustainability of the Earth’s most unlikely place.

FWU offers Cause Shops, an apparel-based fundraising campaign tool for non-profits. In late 2014, FWU partnered with Galapagos Conservancy to help protect, preserve and restore the Galapagos Islands. Although FWU’s goal is to help non-profits, they have already partnered with several companies in the adventure travel industry to help raise funds for Galapagos. In light of this, FWU created Cause Shops for businesses. This model was tested with Quasar Expeditions and has had great success.

I would like to invite you all to become ambassadors for Galapagos by signing up for a NO-COST Cause Shop and join others such as AdventureSmith Explorations, Galapagos Diving, Galapagos Scouts, amongst others.

  • More on Supporters
    • People care. That’s a fact. We care about others. We care about the environment. We care about animals. Caring is not the issue. The issue is doing something about it. So, why aren’t we doing everything in our power to change the world for the better?

      The answer to this question lies in how we choose to live our day-to-day lives and the time we dedicate to family, friends and our jobs. Most of us simply don't have the time and resources to focus on protecting and conserving our world despite our desire to do so. This has created a gap.

      FWU’s business model, products and our lifestyle were embraced to fill this gap.

      One step together in the right direction is worth a thousand leaps alone.

      A better world starts here.
