G Adventures Jane Goodall collection Tanzania Serengeti Safari

G Adventures adds 12 tours to its ‘Jane Goodall Collection’

G Adventures has updated its exclusive Dr. Jane Goodall-endorsed collection for 2020 with 12 new tours.

The wildlife-focused tours include adventures in Indonesia, Botswana, Belize, the Northwest US, mainland Ecuador, the Arctic and Antarctic, and other diverse destinations around the globe. The tour operator's partnership with Jane Goodall Institute of Canada enters the fourth year.

The collection includes 20 itineraries across several travel styles. Each tour is endorsed by UN Messenger of Peace, Jane Goodall, whose Institute protects endangered species through conservation strategies that incorporate the needs of local communities.

Bruce Poon Tip, founder and owner of the tour operator, said: “I am so proud of this partnership and these trips. Dr. Goodall has long been and continues to be an inspiration to me as a traveller, a father, and a social entrepreneur. If we can spread some of her endless optimism and compassion for local communities and the planet’s wildlife among new generations of travellers and changemakers, we will spark a ripple effect that can do wonders for this world.”

Since it launched, the collection has welcomed close to 15,000 travellers from around the world and has seen more than $100,000 in funds and travel assistance donated by the tour operator to support the conservation mission of Goodall’s nonprofit institute.

Andria Teather, Jane Goodall Institute of Canada’s CEO, said: “Partnering with companies who share our values is a priority for JGI. G Adventures is one of those companies that understands and appreciates our work and is prepared to support it. We are extremely grateful for G Adventures’ support.”

Jamie Sweeting, G Adventures’ Vice President of Social Enterprise and Responsible Travel, added: “For many years we have been committed to ensuring that no people or animals are harmed either intentionally or unintentionally by our tours. Jane Goodall’s recognition of our work to protect animals spurred us to take our work in this area to the next level. Together with World Animal Protection, the World Cetacean Alliance and the Jane Goodall Institute we have strengthened our protections even further. We strive to be the best we can be in this vital area of our business, and empower our travellers to do the same in their own adventures.”

With 'Explore Belize', travellers will visit a community baboon sanctuary and see howler monkeys in the wild, go cave canoeing in an ancient Mayan waterway, take snorkelling above the Belize barrier reef to watch sharks and rays. It is a nine-day tour and is priced from £1,199 per person excluding flights.
