A 2020 Adventure Series Honoring 35 Years of Conservation Travel
For those who cherish nature, these are crucial times. It’s imperative that we learn as much as we can about climate change and its impact on natural habitats, if we are to craft a collective response to conserve the diversity of life on Earth—and there’s no better place to start than in the very natural habitats that are witnessing such effects.
Climate change is the focus of our 35th anniversary trip series, an educational foray into five wild places under threat from a warming planet.
On these special 2020 departures, you’ll learn more details about how WWF is protecting wildlife, their habitats, and humanity from the worst effects of climate change. Nat Hab founder and president Ben Bressler will be joining a few trips as well—the Amazon rain forest cruise, our Churchill polar bear expedition, and likely one more, to be announced.
Each small-group adventure will be a highly personalized experience that will move your mind and heart alike:
- Baja: Climate Change & Whale Migrations: March 1–7, 2020
with WWF expert Karen Douthwaite, Lead Specialist, Oceans
- Amazon: Climate Change in the World's Greatest Rain Forest: April 25–May 3, 2020

As we mark our 35th anniversary, much has changed on Planet Earth since Natural Habitat Adventures was launched in 1985. Our first foray into conservation travel was an expedition to Quebec’s Magdalen Islands to see baby harp seals. By taking passionate nature lovers to the ice floes for close encounters with fuzzy infant “whitecoats,” we showed the local community the economic value in protecting wildlife instead of clubbing the newborn seals for their coveted pelts. But a few years ago, we had to stop offering this trip when the sea ice freeze became too unpredictable.
We don’t want a similar fate to befall other destinations. Be part of our important learning endeavor as we search for productive ways to respond to our planet’s climate crisis.
