Explorers Against Extinction is a registered UK conservation charity  (No 1177505). True to our name, we love exploring wild spaces, both on our doorstep and further afield. We are passionate about responsible travel and the role it plays in safeguarding the natural world.

Today, only 15% of land and 7% of ocean are protected. We raise awareness about the threats facing wildlife and wild spaces while also raising significant funds for nominated projects pivotal in the battle to protect them.

Change Starts with Action Whether you love to explore your local wild spaces, or the most remote corners of the planet, we want you to join us and make a stand against extinction.
