ME to We, Ecuador

Another experience offered in partnership with the ME to WE organisation, this sustainable travel experience gives you the opportunity to volunteer on a development project alongside the Teh Mazin community, deep in the heart of Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest. So remote you need to do the final leg of the journey by boat, this 3 day experience will see you staying at the beautiful Minga Lodge whilst working on the WE Village programme, supporting the local community with whichever new project they are currently working on (such as laying the foundations for a new school room). You’ll be working alongside the community, learning about life in the Amazon, and will also get the chance to test your nerve on an Amazonian night walk.

Protecting endangered wildlife species

Proyecto Tití works together with the local community at Hacienda El Ceibal in an effort to save and grow the population of the critically endangered Cotton Top Tamarin primates (CTT). The program takes a three pronged approach including field research, effective scientific assessments of habitats, and community outreach that involves local people in culturally relevant, action-based programs. Visitors can see the CTT primates in their natural jungle habitat, when they are the most active, before meeting with the local community to learn about sustainability and approach to best practices for themselves and the primates.

Shark Savers, Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are renowned for being one of the most biodiverse places on earth, and the fun doesn’t stop on land. Swimming in the waters you’ll find a plethora of shark species including hammerheads, whale sharks, blacktop reef sharks and the Galapagos bullhead shark. The Sharks Count Program encourages snorkelers and divers to log, count and identify each shark they see on their recreational dives or snorkelling trips, and is an initiative we’ve been supporting on our Galapagos trips since 2013.

The Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco, Peru

The Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco (CTTC) is a non-profit organisation that was established by Andean weavers and their supporters. The CTTC protects local indigenous artisans who work to preserve Cusqueñan textile traditions, supporting ten different weaving communities throughout the Cusco region of Peru by providing opportunities for education, training, workshops, and most importantly a marketplace where the artisans can sell their produce. Contiki groups travelling through Cusco visit the CTTC, see the artisans at work and learn about weaving techniques and the history of this ancient art.
