WE WANT THE WORLD TO BE A KINDER PLACE FOR WOMEN, FOR ANIMALS, FOR THE EARTH.
Through environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and wildlife protection we are KIND in all of our operations. We embody sustainable tourism.
We believe that it is our responsibility to help protect, conserve, and contribute positively to the places we are offering adventures. We would like to help make the world a better place through contributing to conservation efforts, social programs, and operating responsibly in the countries we travel to. Our core value is our deep care and respect for the environment and we aim to leave the places we visit in better shape than when we got there.
WE ARE KIND TO EACH OTHER
Our trips give back to local communities and leadership. We partner with organizations and operators who contribute to the environments and communities they are in. On our Pura Vida Adventure Retreat in Costa Rica, we work with a local women’s organization in the community of San Jerónimo on one of their growing projects- a medicinal plant nursery.
WE ARE KIND TO WOMEN
We promote women’s leadership and empowerment. We all know good things happen when a woman is educated or empowered. We work with partners who have female guides as much as possible. We support each other! Our desire to share our love of the outdoors, our sense of adventure and be in the company of other spirited women is what brings us together.
WE ARE KIND TO ANIMALS
Wild Women are kind to Elephants. On our Elephants, Treks, and Temples Tour we support an elephant project run by the Karen Hill Tribe women to protect elephants that had been abused in an exploitative riding camp. We helped fund the first elephant hospital in Thailand. We also support the campaign of the Asian Captive Elephant Working group, a leading coalition of elephant experts and conservationists.
Wild Women are kind to Orangutans. 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 the orangutans in the jungle.
WE ARE KIND TO THE EARTH
We are kind to forests- we leave no trace. We are kind to the oceans- we have reduced our plastic consumption and are working towards reducing our single-use plastic for 2019. Our footprint is minimal- our office is virtual!
In 2019, WWE will be offsetting all domestic flights on all trips including staff travel. We invite clients to offset and make a donation to offsetters. Understanding your carbon footprint, reducing emissions wherever possible, and offsetting direct carbon emissions that cannot be reduced or eliminated is a great start to making a difference. https://www.offsetters.ca/
WE ARE KIND TO CHILDREN
We protect child welfare. We are a member of childsafe. The Child Safe Tourism campaign aims to arm us with knowledge and information on the simple things each of us can do in order to be a child safe traveller. It’s important we know how to take simple actions to minimize harm to children and help create a Child Safe Tourism environment.
