Welcome to our pages !

We are biologists studying the consequences of human disturbance on wildlife using methods from the disciplines of behavioral ecology, endocrinology and immunobiology. Currently, we focus on marine iguanas (Amblyrhynchus cristatus), which are endemic to the Galápagos Islands. This project involves basic research but also questions of interest to applied conservation biology.
Here, we want to provide you with a short overview on the project objects and activities, information and photographs on the Galapagos Islands, as well as links for current news about conservation issues in this unique National Park.
