While at Tortuga Bay you'll have the chance to snorkel and take part in a marine species count. Learn about their “Trash Science” project, which raises awareness about the impact of plastics on the environment and gathers information on the surprising amount of plastics generated on the beaches and parks of the Galapagos. Join members of EPI’s Mola Mola youth eco-club on one of their monthly beach/ park clean-ups – they’ll use the data from it to generate information about trash on Santa Cruz Island.
