With International Expeditions & The Nature Conservancy

For four decades, International Expeditions has had one mission:

“…to stimulate an interest in, develop an understanding of, and create an appreciation for the great natural and cultural wonders of our Earth.” Just by traveling with IE, you are helping to support the Conservancy’s work in 72 countries and all 50 United States.*

  • Providing environmental planning support to indigenous organizations in the Peruvian Amazon
  • Working to ensure the long-term sustainability of 16 million hectares of temperate grasslands in Argentina
  • Protecting the world’s largest free-ranging herd of black rhinos in Namibia’s Etosha National Park
  • Preserving 24 million hectares in Brazil against illegal deforestation
