The Project is located in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island which is one of the most visited towns in the islands. Most visitors at least pass by here on their way to other Islands or on one of the many cruise ships. Puerto Ayora has several nice beaches that can easily be reached and it's the best place to be for day trips to other islands such as Bartolome, Santa Fe, Floreana and Isabela as well as bay trips or diving trips.
The population on Santa Cruz is about 15.000 but they also have a couple of thousand illegal workers as the tourist industry attracts people from the mainland.
