Offsetting Your Flights
We've taken care of the trip itself and we ask that our guests consider offsetting their flights to and from the starting point of the trip. It's simple and surprisingly inexpensive. It's an easy way to help our environment and feel good about how you travel. Click here to visit our Carbon Calculator to get started on offsetting your flights!

Natural Habitat Adventures is committed to being a leader in the field of sustainable travel. Our goal isn’t simply to be the most environmentally responsible tour operator in the world, but to continually raise the bar and challenge other travel related businesses to raise their standards as well.

To this end, we are pleased to announce that beginning in 2007 all of our trips and office operations have been completely carbon neutral, making us the world's first 100% carbon neutral travel company! This means that we’ve paid to offset the carbon emissions that result from all of our office and trip-related activities on your trip. We leave you the option to offset your air transportation to and from the starting point of your adventure. 

Between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2013 we have offset 10,548 tons of CO2. According to the EPA, this is equivalent to...

  • 2,623 cars not on the road for a year
  • 1,411,323 gallons of gasoline not consumed
  • 29,277 barrels of oil not consumed
  • 1,732 homes not using electricity for one year
  • 322,795 tree seedlings grown for 10 years
  • 97 acres of forest preserved from deforestation

The Problem
Did you know that travel-related activities account for up to 14% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions that affect climate change? Or that every time you fly your portion of the flight emits nearly a ton, on average, of greenhouse gasses?

The Solution
Of course there are many benefits of ecotourism and we are not suggesting that people stop traveling. But eliminating the damage we do to the planet through travel-related activities would be a huge victory in the battle against climate change. To accomplish this we have partnered with Sustainable Travel International (STI), a non-profit organization, to offset the greenhouse gases emitted from our trips.

Offsetting Your Adventure
Natural Habitat Adventures has paid to offset 100% of the carbon emissions from your adventure. We are the first travel company on the planet to do so! Here's how: STI calculates the carbon emitted from activities on your adventure (the majority of these emissions result from burning fossil fuels for transportation).  Then, NHA funds carbon reduction projects worldwide to balance emissions equal to the amount released on our trips. For example, NHA may fund the reforestation of native tree species in China or the installation of solar panels on schools in parts of rural Africa.
