Introducing The Pelorus Foundation

With the environment at the forefront of not only global decision-making, but the decision-making behind our adventures, we are thrilled to present the Pelorus Foundation, our charitable arm working hard to protect the planet on which we live.

October 2020

Whilst creating bespoke experiences is at the heart of what we do, Pelorus aims to leave a positive, lasting impact on the planet. Whether it’s community engagement, hands-on conservation, or cleaning up the environment, on each unique trip we inspire our clients to play their part. It brings us great joy to make a difference in the corners of the world we explore, and it is this impact which stimulated a desire to do more. The new Foundation website clearly demonstrates the pioneering actions underway to make progressive change.

The Pelorus Foundation is a charity committed to enhancing our ability to protect, preserve and promote our planet by supporting sustainable initiatives. It is fact that the world has reached a critical point in its existence, and awareness is spreading that action must be taken now if our ecosystems and wildlife are to thrive into the future. The aim of the Foundation is to create and build on existing initiatives to accelerate the pace of change towards a more sustainable future in protecting our planet. By striving towards environmental, wildlife and marine conservation, we are dedicated to protecting at-risk species and environments.

Projects

Through identifying vital projects, building long-standing partnerships and actively getting involved, the Pelorus Foundation is creating and supporting initiatives that address core environmental issues.

Working with World Land Trust’s Carbon Balanced Programme, the Pelorus Foundation is protecting carbon-rich wildlife habitats and endangered forest in the tropics. Across the African continent, we have joined the fight to save wildlife and prevent crime. For the long-term survival of Africa’s endangered species, we aim to train multiple Field Rangers to assist in crucial conservation projects.

Turning our focus to the ocean, in the Mesoamerican region, we are helping to establish an Adaptive Reefscape to ensure coral reefs are protected from overfishing. Never done before in the Red Sea, we are pioneering a new Sea Check system to examine the ocean’s health and monitor human intervention on the biosphere. Furthermore, we are pairing marine scientists with private yachts to access the world’s most remote areas to conduct vital research. Through every action, we are enhancing the prosperity of our oceans.
