Responsible Tourism is a phrase that is top of mind for many travelers and tour providers. Living like a local, utilizing local vendors to benefit communities and while remaining respectful to the people, animals and environment around you have become deeply important to today’s travelers.
In a world as fast-paced and potentially destructive as ours, conservation is more important than ever. No one knows this better or has been at the forefront of the conservation and animal welfare movement longer than Dr. Jane Goodall. She has been a pioneer in the study of chimpanzee behavior and a champion for global animal welfare for more than 50 years.
A longtime partner of STA Travel, G Adventures has launched the Jane Goodall Collection, under the guidance of the Jane Goodall Institute. This selection of 20 awe-inspiring, wildlife-focused tours is designed to bring you into close, larger-than-life contact with the world’s animals, while at the same time respecting their freedom and environment. From the shores of the Galápagos Islands to the banks of the Amazon, the jungles of Uganda, and beyond, this year’s list of Jane Goodall Collection adventures will introduce you to the natural world in ways you’ve never imagined.
These tours are a much needed step in the right direction to raise awareness of animal exploitation in the always-evolving tourism industry. Protecting our world and its inhabitants will help preserve this planet for future generations, and as global tourists there is no time like the present for us all to do our part!
