Responsible tourism: Bangladesh wildlife holiday

Environment

We help to reduce our impact on the environment on this tour by chartering our own boat to cruise the Sunderbans, the vessel is a modern vessel which runs economically and is serviced regularly, to ensure that no excess population (noise, material or water) is exerted on the environment, than a standard live aboard vessel in the Sunderbans. We also happily promote Bangladesh’s policy of using Compressed Natural Gas as an alternative to petrol and diesel and their ban on polythene bags. These two measures are gathering pace inside Bangladesh and this small country is leading the way with national policies affecting the environment.
We also make notes of other boats we see which are in breach of basic environmentally friendly rules and report such boats to the authorities.
At the end of each we offset our carbon footprint (based on the number of tours we have completed and the number of passengers we have taken with us), with the Carbon Trust.

Wildlife Promise:

The wildlife in Bangladesh benefits from our tours in numerous ways, firstly the most obvious one is that our presence as eco tourists in the rainforests and Sunderbans detracts from people logging and poaching illegally. This preserves the numbers of wildlife here as well as helping to protect their habitat.
We also donate an amount of money (depending on the number of tours and the guests) to the Gibbon Conservation Society as well as practising all the policies that Tour Operators for Tigers (TOFT) implement for their sustainable and responsible tiger safaris of India.
We also keep a record of all the gibbons and tigers that we see on the tour so we can update the park authorities on their populations with a hope to helping their conservation efforts. We also donate our pictures to the researchers to aid in their photo identification studies.

Community

The local community benefits in many different ways with this tour of Bangladesh; we help to train the local guides to perfect their bush tracking skills and enhance their knowledge of primates, as to lessen the impact of tourism on them. We also only hire local guides to supplement our zoologist escort, which encourages the local people close by the national parks to pursuit eco training instead of the best guiding jobs going to foreigners and graduates from Dhaka and other large cities. We also have a 100% local crew on board and all the food is sourced from the Sunderbans via sustainable methods and techniques. We also visit local villages throughout the tour and help to promote eco-tourism to the local population as Bangladesh is still a very long way behind its neighbours (India, Sri Lanka and Nepal) when it comes to tourism.
