Ecotours.com has announced the launching of a “one-of-a-kind India experience” that highlights the country’s wild tigers, while also helping in their conservation.
According to Ged Caddick, founder of Terra Incognita Ecotours, the tours are designed to give back in a big way to the places visited, with every traveler donating a percentage of their trip cost directly to WWF – India, the organization tasked with the critical conservation efforts to save one of the most endangered mammals on earth, the tiger.
Ged’s ecotourists spend 11 days visiting two of the countries’ national parks searching for – and observing – wild tigers. Corbett National Park and Bandhavgarh National Park are known for their tiger habitat and wildlife viewing.
WWF – India scientists partnered with Ecotours, even as they are tasked with reducing human-tiger conflict and working with local communities to develop sustainable alternative livelihoods and reducing pressures on tiger habitat. They are also responsible for minimizing the illegal trade in tiger parts and other wildlife. They build awareness about tiger conservation and strengthen tiger protection by providing need-based infrastructural support to the forest department.
Ecotours.com attracts travelers who want an adventure of a lifetime, but want to make a difference as well.
Terra Incognita’s Spring India excursion departs Monday March 11th for 10 days and 11 nights.
