On our Wild Women tours, we are doing our part to protect wildlife. Sustainable tourism can provide a strong economic incentive for wildlife conservation by helping locals at a community level combat wildlife trafficking instead of contributing to the problem. The economic benefits that wildlife and sustainable tourism bring to communities allow for sustainable livelihood options and encourage locals to protect the wildlife populations, even in the face of corruption and crimes against wildlife.
Our team at WWE are passionate about the positive role we can play in protecting wild animals and thank you for supporting this work and joining our adventures!
We are excited to be partnering with the Jane Goodall Institute in support of the Forever Wild (#4EverWild) campaign which works to end wildlife trafficking. In 2019, WWE will donate 100% of our profits from our Tanzania Trek And Safari Adventure. It was in the Tanzanian jungle that Jane Goodall embarked on research that would launch her scientific career. We believe in the work JGI is doing to protect wildlife and we encourage everyone to join us in the Forever Wild campaign: https://janegoodall.ca/join-us/campaign/foreverwild/
FOREVER WILD, JANE GOODALL INSTITUTE
WWE is partnering with the Jane Goodall Institute( JGI) in support of their Forever Wild Campaign (#4everwild) campaign.
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) has launched the #4EverWild campaign to call attention to the crisis that threatens wildlife and works to end wildlife trafficking. Every year, thousands of animals are illegally taken from the wild to be sold live or for their parts on the black market. Around the world, wildlife trafficking threatens the survival of our animals.
“United we are a powerful force for change.” ~ Jane Goodall
BOS FOUNDATION, BORNEO
We support the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation- a community-based program that rescues and rehabilitates orangutans and helps them return safely into the wild. On our Untamed Indonesia trip, we visit these amazing creatures in the jungle. The BOS Foundation encourages the protection of Bornean orangutans and their habitat which increases the empowerment of communities surrounding the orangutan habitat.
GIANT TORTOISE RESTORATION INITIATIVE, GALAPAGOS
The Giant Tortoise Restoration Initiative (GTRI) is a collaborative effort led by Galapagos Conservancy and the Galapagos National Park Directorate (GNPD). The goal is to restore tortoise populations to their historical distribution and numbers across Galapagos, including on islands where tortoises went extinct.
The Galapagos Islands are precious and fragile and protecting the diversity of endangered species is critical. This is the place where our understanding of the evolution of life began on a global scale.
TOFTIGERS advocate for and fund the protection, conservation and rewilding of wildlife, especially the tiger habitat. Through nature and sustainable tourism, TOFTigers use better visitor guidance, more community involvement, targeted green investment and enhanced governance and monitoring.
As part of our commitment to sustainable tourism, WWE helps fund a community program in Kanha Park, one of the tiger reserves we visit on our India tour. The program engages local villagers who live on the buffer zone around the park to be “guardians” of the park, to watch for poaching and help monitor tiger activity.
