There is an organization called Wild Ark whose sole mission is to protect the biodiversity of areas that are identified as green belts around the world. While they are researching these areas, they are also conserving wildlife.
Wild Ark was founded by Mark and Sophie Hutchinson, along with a team of people who are avid conservationist. They work together to educate people about the world wildlife and see that our planet will be protected for our future generations. They are very concerned about the perils that the wilds of the world are facing and they actively work to make a difference.
For the eco-conscious people who like to travel there are many spots to enjoy.
One of the greenest places is Disney’s Oahu property, Aulani which will give you and insight into the local culture and the fresh fish and produce, all from local sources. They have Trade Teacups and It’s a Small World which features snorkeling, native art, kayaking, and a pool where you can go to pet Stingrays.
If you wish to travel to Africa there is the Namibia Desert Rhino Camp on the 1 million acre Palmwag Reserve. You can, for fun and pictures, track the Rhinos, take nighttime nature drive and relax in a simple but sophisticated resort.
Here in the United States, Florida offers some of the best eco-friendly and conservation centered places you can find. You can swim alongside a Dolphin, or go for a walk with thousands of Butterfly’s while walking through botanical gardens and tropical forests. You could also, observe some unique animals that are protected and in their natural habitat.
If you like museums there is Crane Point Hammock in Tavernier Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West, Audubon House and the Butterfly Conservatory and Nature Museum. Some of the Florida Keys Natural Attractions include Natural Key Deer Refuge in the Lower Keys, Marathon Dolphin Research Center, Historic Pigeon Key, and the Keys Natural Marine Sanctuary.
The underwater preserve which was created to protect the Florida Keys barrier reef, at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is another great educational destination for a trip.
