Pelorus in the Press

GlobeTrender VOLT

Jenny Southan discusses the trend of emergency conservation trips and ethical wildlife tourism with Pelorus and the Pelorus Foundation.

June 2021

Pelorus and the Pelorus Foundation have been named in Jenny Southan’s GlobeTrender VOLT article on emergency conservation as one of the key companies encouraging travellers to take conservation-themed trips. 

“The travel industry has a vital role to play in the future of wildlife conservation. It is critical that we work in partnership with local organisations and individuals who are on the front lines to protect endangered species and environments; amplifying their voices to ensure that clients see, feel and understand the reality and complexity of the situation as well as the positive impact they have.” Charlie Drinkwater, Head of the Pelorus Foundation

Our ‘Conservation in the Heartland of Africa’ experience was also mentioned as a trip that helps travellers focus on wildlife protection, with time spent monitoring collard elephants as part of a study to understand how their migratory patterns are changing.
