The UNESCO World Heritage Committee on July 29, 2010 voted to remove the Galapagos Islands from its World Heritage in Danger List.  The Galapagos Islands was placed on the list in 2007.  South American Vacations is pleased that conservation efforts initiated over the last two years are helping to preserve the archipelago for future generations and to make tourism sustainable.

We are doing our small part to protect this world treasure by contributing $50 for each passenger that we send to the Galapagos to IGTOA’s (International Galapagos Tour Operators Association) Traveler Funding Program, which raises funds to support conservation and scientific research.
