2018 – The Year Of The Bird

In honor of commemorating 100 years of the creation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed, the National Geographic Society declared 2018 as the “Year of the Bird”.

To honor this event, nature lovers from all over the world are joining to celebrate the “Year of the Bird” and are committed to protect birds today and for the next hundred years.

Nature lovers from Ecuador, including many from Guayaquil & Galapagos, are joining to this celebration. We also invite nature lovers to discover the unique bird species from our country.

Hotels, naturalist guides, tour operators, among others, work hard to raise awareness among visitors about the relevance of these species and why it is so important to protect them.

A total of 140 species of birds have been recorded in Galapagos. About 50% of the resident birds are endemic to the Galapagos Islands, this means, they are unique in the world.

Come to Galapagos in 2018 to celebrate the year of the bird in Ecuador, the middle of the world, and enjoy a memorable holiday.
