Seeking to revitalise habitats for wildlife and nature conservation

Numerous lodges and resorts deserve mention for their nature conservation efforts from revitalising ecosystems, replanting indigenous trees and wildlife friendly gardens to supporting wildlife conservation and research – either directly or via working in partnership with others locally. The PUG audit also covers nature education and conservation awareness, encouraging good visitor practice, preventing and reporting illegal or bad practice and helping to curb invasive species. Contribute to local conservation for a sustainable future; ask your accommodation provider for suggestions on what to support.
