How Travel Can Help Save the World: The History of Nat Hab
Ben Bressler was a “kid” of 23 living in New Jersey when he launched Natural Habitat Adventures using money he’d saved up from a summer job driving a garbage truck at an amusement park. A year out of college and disillusioned with his job as a prep school history teacher, Ben found himself happiest when he was outdoors in nature—and sharing it with others. Hear the inspiring story of how the company’s first trips to see baby harp seals on the ice floes in Quebec formed Ben’s vision to create a nature travel company that would not only support conservation but enrich his guests in transformative ways —for their own benefit and that of the planet. Today, Nat Hab is based in Boulder, Colorado and offers nature adventures on all seven continents. Find out how we got here, from there!
