The Charles Darwin Research Foundation is your best bet for any kind of work in The Galapagos Islands. They have about 200 staff, research students, and volunteers at one time working on The Galapagos projects. Most who choose to work are interested in a field of study directly related to the Galapagos.
they don't usually have "paid" positions, and you will not
get housing by volunteering for The
Charles Darwin Research Foundation.
It's tough to get a position there at all.
If you have some money saved up and are determined, go to the following web site and apply!
A benefit of being a volunteer, though, is that you can get an extended VISA to stay on the islands longer than the alotted 90 days.
I had proposed writing a children's non-fiction book about the islands, and they responded quite quickly.
Another possibility of work, though not for a lengthy period of time, is helping the foundation count turtles in March.
They will pay for your food and transportation (in the islands themselves), and you will have to camp out on various beaches, finding turtle nests, counting and marking eggs.
You can do this for anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks, and it's a great experience!
