Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Antarctic cruise with Chris Packham

UK office
It all starts at home so we have first worked to reduce our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies in place, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.

Leaders & local suppliers
We take extremely seriously our responsibility to minimise our impact on these pristine areas.
We are an Associate Member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and have agreed to abide by one of the tourism world's most conscientious codes of conduct. Two of our ship operators are also members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), which covers operations in Spitsbergen.

RT Project
Penguin Lifelines
As part of our commitment to conservation and responsible travel, we have teamed up with the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) to support Penguin Lifelines, a conservation project designed to research the impact of climate change on Antarctic penguins and understand their population structure and migration patterns.

Antarctic penguin populations are facing serious threats from both climate change and fisheries. In order to make educated conservation decisions, accurate biological data is needed, and therefore we are helping provide the ZSL with access to valuable data through both 'DNA feather printing' and colony counting from photographic records.

Polar Bear Study
The Polar bear’s migratory patterns have long been a mystery to conservationists. With money raised from expeditions and donations, we have made valuable contributions to the purchase of the expensive tracking collars – critical in monitoring their hunting and mating patterns.

Albatross Campaign
Almost half a million US dollars has been raised through staff and passengers towards the ‘Get the Albatross off the Hook’ campaign, aimed at stopping the butchery of albatrosses by long-line fishing.

Scott Polar Research Institute
Finally we support the work of the Scott Polar Research Institute at Cambridge, which is the oldest international centre for Polar Research within a university.
