ADOPT A CAT & SAVE THE GALÁPAGOS

Cats are one of the most dangerous species in the Galápagos Islands due to several factors:

1

Predation on Native & Endemic Species

Feral cats prey on small native reptiles and birds. This predation significantly impacts the island's unique wildlife, including species like Galápagos marine iguanas, lava lizards, and various bird species.

2

Threat to Other Wildlife

Studies indicate that introduced cat's diet in the Galápagos include not just reptiles and birds, but also introduced species like mice and rats. Their predatory behavior poses a threat to tortoise eggs, native iguana species, bird chicks, and even penguins, disrupting the ecological balance of the islands.

WHY THIS MATTERS

The Galápagos Islands are a treasure trove of biodiversity, home to an array of unique species found nowhere else on Earth. However, this fragile ecosystem faces a critical threat from an unlikely source: feral cats.

Introduced to the islands, these cats have become invasive predators, significantly impacting native wildlife including rare birds, reptiles, and small mammals.

Our mission is to restore the ecological balance of the Galápagos by relocating these cats to the mainland, where they can be cared for and adopted into loving homes.
