Proud to be supporting +Amazon Watch "Stop Dirty Dams in the Amazon" campaign.

"The Amazon's rivers and forests are fundamental to global climate stability. Their preservation, along with the defense of the land rights of indigenous forest stewards, will help to contain climate chaos."

Here's what you can do to help prevent the destruction of some of the planet's most valuable waterways:

Over the past 35 years or so, it is thought that Africa's elephant population has fallen from 1.3million in 1979 to just 400,000 in 2016.

We're supporting +Born Free Foundation "Bloody Ivory" campaign to bring an end to the legal and illegal trade in ivory and stem a huge decline in elephant population numbers in Africa.

Born Free president Will Travers, tells us more about the campaign + why we should all sign the petition to reject the ivory trade ahead of the CITES conference next week:

Exclusive interview with +Justin Francis, CEO Responsible Travel on his vision + making a difference:

"Ultimately our aim is to help create a more caring tourism industry but to do this we need to show that a more caring form of tourism is commercially successful. Tesla transformed prospects for electric cars, from essentially being dead in the water, to being an exciting, and widely accepted part of the automobile industry. Our ambition is to do the same for responsible tourism. To popularise it so it is widely accepted by tourists and the tourism industry, to create greater customer demand for it, to excite people about responsible tourism and to show the world that any type or tourism, from niche to mainstream can be more responsible. We hope we’ve made a start – since the start of 2015 we’ve grown 30% – the quickest in our 15 year history."
