As of January 2017 Nature Discovery has been awarded the status of Carbon Elite Offsetter by Carbon Tanzania. We have gone through a rigorous process to assess the emissions generated by our entire operation, reduced them where possible, and we offset the remaining unavoidable emissions.
Contributions from Nature Discovery go to fund villages who in turn organize patrols, such as the one pictured above, to stop deforestation in areas designated by Carbon Tanzania. In these areas communities receive financial incentives to protect their forests. They rely on businesses such as Nature Discovery who want to give back to protect the environment. Nature Discovery in turn relies on clients to whom this is a priority, who are willing to pay that little bit more to travel with an outfitter who invests in the future.
