The Inglorious Bustards have a challenge!
We want to share with you the joy of watching wildlife all along the East Atlantic flyway, but in doing so we inevitably encourage consumption of the planet´s resources. Our challenge as a responsible ecotourism operator is to channel our activities into a positive outcome for the environment. We want to make sure that, when you travel with us, you´ll be benefitting, not exploiting the wildlife we see together. We call this concept #FlywayBirding.
Here – alongside some amazing photos! – we discuss our practices and plans for turning traditional so-called ‘eco-tourism’ on its head, putting conservation action and education at the very heart of what we do. We’ve thought hard about how to bring a completely fresh approach to delivering wildlife holidays from a sustainable standpoint, making only a positive impact on our surroundings. And we’ve worked extremely hard to build some fantastic partnerships to help us!
