Annual Donation to the Charles Darwin Foundation

For the fourth consecutive year, Tropical's Blue Foot White Shrimp program made its annual donation to the  Charles Darwin Foundation in the Galapagos Islands.

Donations to the Charles Darwin Foundation support the CDF's mission to ensure the conservation of the environment and biodiversity in the Galapagos Archipelago by providing knowledge and assistance through scientific research and complementary action. 
Through our Blue Foot White Shrimp program we have committed to contribute to the conservation of Ecuador's fragile Galapagos Islands by making a donation to the CDF for every pound of Blue Foot White Shrimp sold.

The funds we accumulate for our annual donation come directly from the sale of Blue Foot White Shrimp produced in Ecuador by Industrial Pesquera Santa Priscilla and distributed by Tropical.

In 2015, donations to the Charles Darwin Foundation helped to:

Save the Mangrove Finch

Q: Why do saltwater fish drink more water than freshwater fish?
 A: Saltwater fish need to drink more water than freshwater fish. Since seawater is saltier than the liquids in a fish's body, water inside the fish is constantly flowing out. If they didn't drink to replace the lost water, saltwater fish would dry up like prunes.
