Nature returns on the Galapagos: Release of Darwins finches marks a milestone for Rewilding Floreana

Nature returns on the Galapagos: Release of Darwins finches marks a milestone for Rewilding Floreana

On February 22, 2024, Jocotoco and its partners successfully completed the release of five native finch species on Floreana Island in the Galapagos. The finches were being held in aviaries while we removed invasive rats, mice, and other predators from the island. With invasive predators almost completely gone, we can now begin the next phase of the most ambitious restoration project ever undertaken in the archipelago. We will rewild Floreana by bringing back twelve species of animals that disappeared from the island generations ago.
