“Conservation through Exploration” uses travel as a means to protect our planet by bringing economic support to local people, encouraging them to protect the natural habitats they steward. It means traveling with suppliers who are committed to reducing waste and sustaining wild places through donations to organizations like the World Wildlife Fund. Not only will you be enriched by these wondrous encounters with the wild, but you will be giving back while in the process. What a beautiful synergy! Here is just a handful of the many unique conservation travel experiences awaiting you.
Stay in this one-of-a-kind adventure camp featuring raised canvas tents and treehouses surrounded by wild tortoise habitat. With this exceptional access, you will frequently encounter Galapagos tortoises basking in mud pools or tucking into their nests to sleep for the night. You will have access to the archipelago’s namesake around the clock!
Every winter, hundreds of Pacific gray whales return to their birthing and breeding grounds in the San Ignacio Lagoon on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. Their 6,000 mile migration from Alaska’s Bering Sea is the longest mammal migration on Earth. They are intrigued by humans and will often swim right up to your open boat. You will see them breach and may observe mating behavior as well. No other whale watching experience can compare. Overnight in “whale cabanas” at a remote beachfront eco camp away from any other visitors.
One of the world’s most astounding wildlife events occurs each year in Mexico’s Central Highlands where millions of monarchs roost and breed each winter on a grove of fir trees on a remote mountaintop. When the sun emerges, hear the gentle hum of butterfly wings and see clouds of orange as they take flight. Explore traditional mountain villages while witnessing the benefits of butterfly ecotourism for local people.
Each fall, polar bears congregate on the western shore of Hudson Bay, waiting for the ice to form and seal-hunting season to begin. Coming face to face with a wild polar bear on the tundra is a peak life experience, especially when you understand their precarious future. Stay at the Tundra lodge, a custom train of connected lounge cars, dining car and sleeping compartments built on wheels allowing mobile stationing for optimal polar bear viewing. Daily expeditions in spacious heated Polar Rovers offer you more chances to see them in greater comfort and safety than any place else on Earth.
Track wolves along with naturalists and scientific researchers in Yellowstone’s remote Lamar Valley and travel by horse-drawn sleigh across the National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole for close-up views of the vast winter herds beneath the Teton spires. After this rare winter wildlife safari, your adventurer’s spirit will never be the same.
