Natural Habitat Philanthropy

Conservation travel has transformative power. It can benefit communities, safeguard wildlife and preserve cultural heritage. In addition to our conservation travel partnership with World Wildlife Fund, established in 2003, Natural Habitat Adventures also engages in various philanthropic initiatives in the destinations we visit. Nat Hab's commitment to conservation and sustainable development has inspired our leadership role in boosting grassroots efforts in places our guests have come to know and love. We actively pursue innovative efforts to conserve the environment and promote the welfare of local communities.

If you are in charge of a sustainability project that aligns with our values in places we operate, or if you wish to learn more about our existing projects, please email us, or call Court Whelan, Nat Hab's Director of Sustainability and Conservation Travel, at 800-543-8917.
