Description of Red Panda and bird tour in India
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs a responsible tour operator we leave as little footprints as possible while enriching the environment and social profiles as we conduct our package tours.
We follow sound principles of responsible guidelines auguring for conservation efforts where ever we go. This also includes a community service, especially related to indigenous communities.
Our choice of lodges ends at the oneís that follow green practices and care for the environment as we would. Lodges that grow their own vegetables, use water preciously, employ alternative mechanism to generate and use energy, and have proper waste management are our preference.
We encourage alternative means of travel or transportation using cycles, electric vehicles and of course moving on foot. Use of Plastic bags etc. is strictly prohibited in this area.
The Green Village Movement that we have started is about using alternative sources of energy to Firewood. One of the most important agendas is saving trees and keeping the habitat intact; unfortunately no one is addressing this, and eventually hundreds of trees are getting cut every year in the Prime Red Panda Habitat. Therefore, we have started a movement are staging awareness camps and also providing communities with alternate source of energy to help them start the change. In a green village, no one will cut trees and use LPG gas and will use solar instead. Kaiakata Green is one of our first initiatives which now do this.
Among our clients we discourage the use of plastic items which are not reusable and plastic bottles which are replaced by refillable bottles made of eco-friendly material.
PeopleWe encourage community initiatives as we do ourselves to create a sense of proud ownership where responsibility is concerned. This is a sound way of ensuring the profits made from tourism are having an impact on all levels. We directly help funnels the profits into local hands by encouraging local the purchase of local handicrafts etc.
We work with our local guides and naturalists on conservation initiatives and as such they are the environmental safe guards of their area and ensure that visitors are in turn of aware and ensure our pristine lands remain so.
We partner with businesses that give back to their communities through conserving their home. The accommodation guests stay at for example is sharing 20% of itís profit with W.A.T.E.R. for the conservation work on Red Panda and its habitat.
Dogs are one of the main threats to Red Panda & its habitat for a number of reasons. Rabis, Canine Distemper and Hunting of Wild Animal including Red Panda. Though these problems were identified before but no substantial work have done towards it. Therefore we have chosen to support this initiative, and have organised dog vaccination camps in 15 villages (around 117 dogs) in 2 phases. Soon we will be covering 95% of the dogs in the Red Panda Habitat. We are doing this with the help of Animal Welfare Board officers. Every time you visit us, you directly contribute towards conservation of nature, and safe guarding the future of the Red Panda.
