to see polar bears
Churchill Manitoba and polar bears is all about conservation and sustainability. It is vital to saving wildlife and preserving communities. I take a look at one company doing great things around the globe to ensure wildlife, culture, communities and economies are conserved and sustained.
Natural Habitat Adventures is making a difference around the world with their partnership with World Wildlife Fund. Their partnership offers a chance for conservation research and traveler experiences. Both create solutions to help better inform and implement sustainability practices and policies.
I had a chance to see first hand how Nat Hab works with communities to ensure tourism supplements local economies to keep them strong, all while protecting the polar bears who also call Churchill home.
Two of their outstanding expedition leaders share how Churchill is doing a great job of saving their polar bears. Leanne Thompson was my expedition leader and she was fantastic. It was an educational experience, learning about polar bears and their lifecycle, what they eat, their reproductive patterns and how they are surviving in a changing climatic environment.
This year I am on a mission to not only define sustainability and conservation, but also other aspects of our world in need of preserving. Culture, traditions, language, cuisine – the many things that make us want to travel the world and explore. Court Whelan, Chief Sustainability Officer at Natural Habitat Adventures defines sustainability, conservation and eco-tourism and how each person can make a difference.
Take a listen and share what you think about sustainability and conservation.
