How does Casa Natura Galápagos Lodge help the local fauna? Casa Natura Galápagos Lodge is committed to the conservation of animals and the environment by greatly reducing the use of non-degradable plastics. For instance, we are encouraging our guests to decrease the use of plastics. Also, we have taken the decision to use glass containers instead of using plastic containers, especially during breakfast time. This measure helps to decrease the impact of this material on the ecosystem of the species in the Galapagos Islands.
In 1929 at the Vienna Congress, the World Organization for the Protection of Animals stated October 4th as the World Animal Day. This day was established to be able to create awareness and take measures for the preservation especially of endangered species.
In the Galapagos Islands, there are around 9000 species. This number is in changing constantly due to the scientific discoveries and investigations that occur in the Enchanted Islands. Today, there are approximate 23 species in danger of extinction. Hotels, foundations, and various organizations carry out activities to preserve the species of the islands.
