Expedition to the rainforest
There are no people in Bigai, that is located in Ecuador. There is only a lot of beautiful nature with a lot of amazing animals in.
But only for a short while longer... South of the area there are a lot of fields where coffee and cocoa is grown. There is also a lot of cleared rainforest to make room for cattle.
The settlers are moving dangerously close to Bigai and because of that a border is essential to preserve the area for our future generations.
To ensure that the area is not cleared and remains untouched, Randers Regnskov's Nature trust fund has hired a local coordinator as well as two local forest guards. Their task is patrolling the area and keeping poachers and other intruders away. But they also have another important task: Checking the automatic cameras that Randers Rainforest has set up in the area to get a direct view of the diverse wildlife there.
Gate to Nature will bring you on an expedition in the area where you, along with the local forest guards, will take care of the amazing rainforest and the animals that live in it.
Expedition to Africa
Ree Park Safari has set up the Karen Blixen Camp Trust, a Kenyan nonprofit organization. The trust fund works in the unique and fragile ecosystem of Masai Mara in Western Kenya, where the Karen Blixen Camp is located.
The Karen Blixen Camp trust fund has a total of six focus areas. One of them is the Mara Elephant Project.
The elephants that live in the Maasai Mara are the largest species of elephants. It is estimated that an elephant will be poached every 15th minutes in Africa. At that speed the African elephants will be extinct within 10-15 years. The Mara Elephant Project examines elephant movements using elephant-friendly GPS collars. The tracking collars allow you to monitor elephant movements (or lack of movement). The collected data helps developing the strategy of the rangers in the fight against the poachers and the efforts to avoid conflicts between elephants and locals.
When you go with Gate to Nature on an expedition to Africa you can be a part of putting GPS collars on the elephants - maybe even from a sponsorship from your company.
