Zegrahm Expeditions is proud to partner with The Nature Conservancy to support their mission to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Together, we will work towards protecting our planet as we introduce travelers to the wonders and value of nature.
This partnership allows our travelers to learn more about The Conservancy’s work in over 69 countries, as well as impart what we can all do to help protect nature. Plus, qualifying guests will receive a complimentary one-year membership* from The Nature Conservancy, and a portion of each guest’s trip cost** will be contributed to The Conservancy over a three-year period to help fund conservation projects—many in the countries Zegrahm visits—across the globe.
