We partner with Rewilding Apennines, a non-profit organisation in central Italy, to rewild 100 square metres of land for every one of our passengers.
The process of “rewilding” helps to restore our nature’s ecosystems and biodiversity, for wildlife to return and thrive, while also combatting climate change by increasing the land’s ability to absorb carbon.

Our partnership with the tech science company NatureMetrics helps us take action to better understand ecosystem biodiversity. Together with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), NatureMetrics is building an important database of biodiversity, the eBioAtlas.
Our Citizen Science Departures enable customers to take part in collecting environmental DNA samples on their adventures, once analysed in the lab, the data helps support conservation action and inform world biodiversity policy .

As part of our commitment to climate and nature action, we’ve joined our sister companies across the Travelopia Group* to partner with Blue Marine Foundation.
Our objective is to help conserve the stunning coastlines and marine life that enrich your holidays and to restore ocean ecosystems that are vital in tackling climate change.
Together with our sister travel companies, we intend to donate at least £1 million over the next 3 years, with an aim to support the conservation and restoration of 7,000 hectares of vital marine ecosystems through seven global projects.
From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, Kenya to Indonesia, these protected “blue carbon ecosystems” have the potential to remove and store thousands of tonnes of carbon every year. They will also help protect a rich diversity of coastal and underwater wildlife, including endangered species.
Our support will also enable the training and employment of local communities in marine conservation, helping ensure these beautiful places are preserved for generations.
