How Travel Supports Conservation
With a name like Explorers Against Extinction, and patrons including Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Levison Wood, it will come as no surprise to learn that a passion for travel and adventure is integral to what we do.
Responsible travel is a vital piece in the jigsaw to safeguard wildlife and wild spaces. Ecotourism can conserve biodiverse areas and transform the livelihoods of local people by generating investment and jobs.
Our Travel Network
In order to remain competitive, offer expert service and first-hand knowledge across the globe, we’ve selected specialist partners. Each partner is highly experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated to ensuring you have the best responsible travel experience.
Trips for Trees – conservation funded by travel
A minimum 10% of profit from every booking made through our network supports tree-planting through our Carbon for Conservation scheme, with the remainder helping to cover some of the direct overheads incurred running the charity. This ensures that funds from other activities can go where they are intended: to the designated projects.
In time, it is hoped that travel will not only support tree-planting but grow to such a level that it can directly fund other frontline conservation projects.
To give you an idea of what can be achieved:
Just £500 protects a 250-acre swathe of rainforest in Indonesian Borneo for one year. This area of rainforest supports two to five orangutans and stores over 81,000 tons of CO2 (the equivalent amount produced by 17,000 vehicles being driven for one year).
£100 can help to transform an arid square kilometre of land in Kenya, to a habitat for many species of mammals, birds, reptiles and insects thanks to clever ‘seedball’ dispersal.
