You and 13 other Girl Scouts will make a difference by helping plant native trees in the highlands with the local conservation organization. Learn about ecotourism and conservation in this fragile archipelago. Enjoy snorkeling and boat trips to see amazing wildlife that has no fear of humans. Interact and work side by side with Quito Girl Guides on the Ecuadorian mainland.
Stay in comfortable hotels while in Quito and Puerto Ayora, on the island of Santa Cruz. Two full days of service work and community interaction, followed by day trips by boat to neighboring islands and remote beaches. Swim with sea lions and make sure to walk around the blue-footed boobies in your path. Don't miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime!
