Wildlife Expeditions
Wildlife tourism is no longer a niche industry but part of a wider global movement and consciousness which believes in preservation of the natural world through education and cooperation.
We at PlanetWildlife are passionately dedicated to wildlife conservation and as part of our commitment to environmentally responsible tourist practices, one of our principle aims is to elevate the role that eco tourism can play in helping to conserve endangered habitats and species. We believe that responsible wildlife tourism can be a valuable way of helping to conserve threatened habitats and the species found within them.
On our herpetological expeditions whenever possible, we enlist the help of indigenous tribes such as the Irula's in Chennai and the Apatani in Arunachal Pradesh, thereby providing valuable income for poorer communities. In addition by enlisting the help of researchers and paying to stay at conservation institutions such as Romulus Whitaker's Agumbe Rainforest Research Station (ARRS) and the Madras Crocodile Bank, valuable funds go directly towards important research and conservation efforts.
Throughout 2011, we are running a fantastic range of expeditions for serious wildlife enthusiasts. We have collaborated with India’s finest naturalists and herpetologists including Romulus Whitaker and Gerry Martin to devise truly wonderful wildlife expeditions with a difference.
If you fancy trekking with internationally renowned wildlife specialists and tribal trackers in some of the most biodiverse regions in the world looking for crocodiles, snakes, lizards and amphibians and a range of other fascinating wildlife from tigers to Indian rhinoceros then have a look through these pages and please get in touch. These expeditions are a great opportunity to increase your field herping knowledge and experience, as well as have the trip of a lifetime.
In addition to the trips below we are always busy working on exciting projects all over the world so feel free to contact us to learn more about our global expeditions program.
