Responsible tourism: Canada Arctic wilderness safari, Polar bears & Narwhals

Environment

We know our wildlife; in fact it is buried within the roots of our company and will always be so. It is essential that we preserve the natural habitat and home of these creatures, great and small from jaguars to storks, otters to capybara and even the tiniest insect. We contribute a percentage of each safari sold to wildlife conservation and always keep our eyes peeled for new projects to get involved with.

We aim to reduce waste and our impact on the environment within our destinations, and at home in the UK, where our offices our based. We work in partnership with the Borough of Brighton & Hove in an attempt to recycle and reuse as much as possible. Our clients are always advised on the best way to do this when away. We recommend using environmentally friendly shampoos, soaps and toiletries, to avoid leaving any litter (whether it is biodegradable or not)

Whenever possible we use accommodation that savours every drop of precious water; from using environmentally friendly flushing toilets and to savouring rain water for washing, to using solar power heating.

Clients are always made aware of the danger that polar bears impose and how to interact with them and the local people without having a negative impact. We always warn people of the safe distances to put between yourselves and the bears, not to eat or wear perfume around them or to do anything else that may encourage a bear to associate humans with food. We also make sure people know how to act if it looks like a bear is coming towards you, and what not to do in that situation.

A direct contribution is made from each safari sold to the conservation and preservation of the bears in the destination of choice. This contribution is made for the conservation of the bears, local communities and projects, and local conservation agencies.

Responsible tourism is the way forward for travel in the 21st Century; as we destroy more and more of our natural environment we slowly begin to realise how much we need it. Due to human-caused climate change it is predicted that the Arctic sea ice which polar bears need to hunt will be gone within the next 50 years and polar bears could be extinct within 100 years.

Unfortunately, it is not hard to find similar such examples in relation to both the other bears of the world and wildlife in general. When visiting destinations we bear this in mind and remember how privileged we are to be able to see the wildlife and nature that you are visiting, and, in a few years, if no action is taken, the fact that it will no longer be there...

Community

The purpose of our safaris is to contribute to local populations, communities and projects. We give our travelers advice on how to interact with the local population, flora and fauna in order to minimise any negative impact. We encourage the use of local guides in every destination and with every local agent. Even on our specialist led safaris we try to ensure that a local guide is also used. We do not believe in taking jobs from local populations in order to provide for western needs.

Where possible we will always use local suppliers in preference to others whether this is in the purchase of provisions, accommodation, transport or equipment.We believe the best way to learn about and enjoy the experience of being on safari with us is to make the effort to mingle with the local people, taste new foods and try new experiences.

This trip employs local staff wherever possible, both at the lodge and on your expeditions. A donation from this trip is put back into the community in order to help preserve the polar bears and look after their future in the wild.
