Sustainability & Conservation

We Are The Nature People!  Our product is exploration to the farthest corners of the natural world. We have the great privilege of showing our guests the wonders of our beautiful planet, with unparalleled access to amazing wildlife, diverse cultures, and the world’s most extraordinary landscapes. We believe that travel has the power to protect wildlife, benefit communities, and preserve cultural heritage—principles we view not only as our goal, but our responsibility.

Since our inception in 1985, Natural Habitat Adventures has been a global leader in the field of sustainable travel and ecotourism. Led by a team of passionate conservationists, our commitment to these principles runs deep within our company ethos and is manifested throughout our office and field operations. We’re proud to have initiated a number of “industry firsts,” and we continue to push our company and our partners to be leaders in sustainable tourism.

A Bold Commitment
Natural Habitat Adventures is committed to being the leader in the field of sustainable tourism. We realize that being first in the area of conservation and sustainability is a bold and costly move, but it’s a challenge we are enthusiastic to tackle.

A Holistic Approach
We believe that sustainability must be approached from every angle of our operations. From our head office in Boulder, Colorado to our field operations in northern Canada, from our lodging choices in Africa to the communities supported by our philanthropic initiatives, we’re scrutinizing every aspect of our business and supply chain to find opportunities for improvement. And we are not fooling ourselves—we can always improve.

Raise the Bar on Conservation and Ecotourism
Sustainability is central to who we are, but it’s a constantly changing world out there. Cutting-edge conservation projects five years ago may be standard practice now. While we’re proud of our accomplishments, to achieve our goal of leading the industry, we must innovate, collaborate and constantly push ourselves to raise sustainability standards internally and across the industry.

Inspire Others
Our goal isn’t simply to be the most culturally and environmentally responsible tour operator in the world, but to challenge other travel-related businesses to raise their standards as well. We’ve worked closely with our partners to share our successes and failures, and we regularly participate in industry conferences to promote best practices. If we can inspire others—partners and competitors alike (as well as our guests, of course) —to raise their sustainability standards, then we’ve achieved our most important goal.

A Work in Progress

We are very proud of the sustainability achievements we’ve made to date, but we also recognize the many opportunities that exist to push the bar higher. Sustainability is not a destination, so we’re working hard to ensure we do the best our resources will allow along every step of the journey. But we aren’t perfect, and if you’ve got a suggestion for ways we can improve further, we’d love to hear from you.
