VISIT Madagascar

The fourth largest island on Earth, Madagascar is a global conservation priority as one of the most biodiverse places on our planet. Boasting a remarkable array of unique flora and fauna, with 90% of its plant species only found in Madagascar and 110 species of lemur, of which 94% are threatened with extinction, the beauty of this rich island is juxtaposed with the extreme poverty and malnutrition driving the country’s deforestation and habitat loss. Nearly half of its natural forest cover has been lost since the 1950s due to habitat degradation, slash and burn agriculture and fires. A journey to this rare and distinct landscape offers exploration of its diverse geographies, from lush rainforests to deserts and pristine beaches, alongside the opportunity to understand how grassroots solutions are working to both protect the unique biodiversity and promote local conservation cooperation and alternative forms of livelihood.

Our Impact Pledge is our commitment to support the advancement of pioneering conservation projects through direct donations with every journey. In 2023, and our second calendar year, we raised and directed over $50,000 to grassroot conversation projects. We do this by created hosted and private conservation travel experiences in Madagascar and around the world.

OUR FOCUS - THE IBERÁ NATIONAL PARK:

This extraordinary wetland, the largest in Argentina, is home to 30% of the biodiversity in the country including endangered species such as the pampas and marsh deer, the maned wolf and grassland birds like the strange-tailed tyrant.

In 2005, what was to become one of the largest rewilding programs in the Americas was started, with the goal of restoring keystone species that had been extirpated from Iberá through hunting and habitat loss and were extinct in the region, the Province or, in some cases, the country. 

As the rewilding program developed, the cultural identity of Iberá began to recover alongside the ecosystems and natural processes, impacting a total population of 100,000 people who surround the park.

Today, Iberá stands as one of the world’s most successful ongoing conservation missions.
