Green Global Travel's Amazon Adventure

bret love mary gabbett green global travelCo-Founded by Bret Love & Mary Gabbett, Green Global Travel is an ecotourism, nature/wildlife conservation & sustainable living magazine.

Bret and Mary launched Green Global Travel because they are passionate about ecotourism, and believe in its potential to help save the world’s precious nature and wildlife by encouraging sustainable practices that both benefit and respect local indigenous cultures. With the theory that they can change the world one story at a time, Bret and Mary believe that the words, photos and videos captured on their journeys will both entertain you and help draw attention to the importance of environmental conservation. In February 2012, Bret and Mary traveled with International Expeditions to the Peruvian Amazon for our 10-day Amazon River cruise. These photos and stories capture the beauty of the area, not to mention the fun that guests experience when traveling to the Amazon with IE.
