Book a tour to help conservation
Where Wild Things Roam have launched a travel platform, Where Wild Things Roam Travel (WWTR Travel), offering unique tours that provide travellers with an opportunity to engage in conservation and give something back when travelling.
By travelling with WWTR Travel you can make a difference in local communities and the protection of wildlife and the environment. With the global pandemic putting a halt on international travel in regions, WWTR Travel has launched more regional tours that encourage travellers to get out in their own backyard and roam at home.
The Australian tours include cycling in Tasmania, sailing the Whitsundays, trekking the Larapinta Trail, camping in Outback Australia and swimming with manta rays at Lady Elliot Island. Looking towards borders opening and international travel returning, travellers can also book onto the 2023 departure to Antarctica or register interest for rhino conservation in South Africa, humpback whale swimming in Tonga, gorilla trekking in Rwanda and orangutan conservation in Borneo.
The 14 day WWF Journey to the Circle and Giants of Antarctica tour partners with the World Wildlife Fund – Australia (WWF Australia) and Intrepid to scout icy waters and white shores for whales and other critters by day, then relax and enjoy a fascinating lecture program by night. Alongside the regular team of Antarctic experts, WWF Australia scientists will join this tour to share insights into whale conservation as they conduct cutting edge research on these underwater giants. And whale tales are just the beginning! This adventure offers you the chance to explore Antarctica’s barren beauty on foot and by Zodiac, and encounter penguin rookeries, sight leopard seals and gawp at towering glaciers as they calve right before your eyes.
Travelling with Dr Ari Friedlaender and a team of researchers in peak humpback whale season, you’ll get the chance to learn about state-of-the-art whale research techniques and marine conservation. Get the chance to take daily excursions with experts in Antarctic biology, glaciology and history, then unwind at night with onboard lectures and presentations.
