Responsible tourism: Grizzly bear tour in British Columbia

Environment

We always try to use accommodation that is environmentally friendly and that uses local produce and materials in its cuisine and structure. We reflect this in our running of the office where everything that can be re-used or recycled is!

Guests are always encouraged to respect the wildlife and landscape in which they are visiting. Before travel they are sent some travel notes which includes a sub-section on bear safety. Guests are warned to stay at least 50 yards away from bears at all times and to always move out of the way of approaching bears, bears are usually deterred by human presence so it is likely that it has not seen you in this case. They are told not to bring food or anything with an odour (including perfume and gum), to keep human odours to a minimum and so they do not start to associate humans with dinner!

A direct contribution is made from each safari sold to the conservation and preservation of the bears in the destination of choice. This contribution is made for the conservation of the bears, local communities and projects, and local conservation agencies.

Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly local accommodation. It is not always possible to find eco-friendly accommodation in some remote destinations; if this is the case then we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their service with the environment in mind.

Our UK operations reflect our standards abroad in that we aim to minimise our impact on the environment as much in the UK as we would do in any of our destination countries. We attempt to do this through recycling of any office waste including, paper, plastic, cans, glass, refuse, in partnership with the Borough of Brighton & Hove.

Responsible tourism is the way forward for travel in the 21st Century; as we destroy more and more of our natural environment we slowly begin to realise how much we need it. When visiting destinations we bear this in mind and remember how privileged we are to be able to see the wildlife and nature that you are visiting, and, in a few years, if no action is taken, the fact that it will no longer be there...

Community

The purpose of our safaris is to contribute to local populations, communities and projects. We give our travellers advice on how to interact with the local population, flora and fauna in order to minimise any negative impact. We encourage the use of local guides in every destination and with every local agent. Even on our specialist led safaris we try to ensure that a local guide is also used. We do not believe in taking jobs from local populations in order to provide for western needs.

Where possible we will always use local suppliers in preference to others whether this is in the purchase of provisions, accommodation, transport or equipment.We believe the best way to learn about and enjoy the experience of being on safari with us is to make the effort to mingle with the local people, taste new foods and try new experiences.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit the first tribe in Bella Coola, the Nuxalk. This is to learn about their culture and experience their way of life through stories, music and art. We strongly believe that guests should do their best to learn about the local cultures and experience the local delicacies.
