Protecting The Planet

The Bigger Picture

Helping Leapers travel responsibly is at the core of what we do. We want our Leapers to explore the world yet leave it a better a place by contributing to our planet protecting programs.

Through our programs we protect, restore and fund the environments our Leapers travel to.

Protect

Did you know: “200 species go extinct everyday”.

In Madagascar you will learn to dive so you can safely monitor and rebuild healthy coral reefs.

In Costa Rica, you will identify turtle nests, protect them from human and natural predators and escort hatchlings to the ocean. Furthermore, you will help with the fight against the plastic littered along the pacific beaches.

In Tanzania you will help with reforestation and educate the Massaai about alternative fuel methods to protect the forests.

Restore

Did you know: “the rate of deforestation occurs at 30 football fields a minute”...

In the Philippines you will plant mangrove trees to help restore natural sea defenses, protecting the coast line from rising sea levels.

In Ecuador you will teach the local community about the effects of deforestation, as well as the ways to protect and restore their local environment.

In Namibia, you will get the reserve safe and ready for the re-wilding of local species including the endangered black rhino by 2025.

Fund

Did you know: In a typical year we spend over half a million on projects overseas.

The price you pay for a trip is temporary, the value of your help to the environment is permanent...

“we need to stop funding things that destroy nature and start funding things that restore it” – Greta Thunberg




Carbon Offset

One of the questions we get asked all the time is how can we offset our flights? Well, the answer is simple - you plant trees when you get to your destination.

Lots of trees, saplings or mangroves will be planted by you during your adventure and if the season is to dry then the next group will do it on your behalf. We aim to plant 5 - 10 for every Leaper.
