Wildlife and Conservation
Supporting the places and projects that utilise sensitive tourism and community engagement to fund and promote conservation is a great way to experience Southeast Asia's most remarkable places
The mountains, rivers and dense jungles of Southeast Asia are home to a dazzling array of wildlife, but as in many of the world's developing countries many animals are in decline due to the effects of war, deforestation and pollution. Poaching is also an issue; there's a huge demand across Asia from people who want to eat or wear endangered animals. Fortunately great efforts are underway across the region to protect both the animals and the crucial habitats in which they will thrive in the future.
