What we do
What we do, and why we do it :)
We explore as small groups, in a way that is as non-intrusive as possible to the animals or their environment. We obtain special government permits and go to the absolute best places on the planet at the correct time of year to encounter each of these endangered animals. These locations are known by just a handful of dedicated researchers, these are the types of places that the BBC and National Geographic researchers look for. It's more ethical and much more educational to see wildlife in their natural habitats. The feel of awe and wonder from these close encounters is impossible to capture on camera, it can be uplifting even life changing, it's a feeling you cannot put into words. Holistic healers are drawn to these expeditions as they are so naturally energizing.
Only a few people can join each year so that we do not crowd the animals. We help to protect the animals we see in several ways. Images from expeditions are donated for non invasive marine mammal and shark i.d. programs. Images are used for local campaigns to lower boat speed in whale shark, turtle and manatee areas. Permit fees help support local preserves set up to protect the animals. Our Images and findings are being used to create educational media to teach about the real lives of the animals, to get people interested in protecting them. We hope to spread ideas of how to protect the animals by getting into Earth friendly habits in our own homes, as well as protecting the natural habitates and seasonl feeding grounds.
The experience of joining an expedition is incredible, we learn about the real everyday lives of the animals in their own natural wilderness habitats. People you may meet on this type of expedition are people who are passionate about higher level mammals. People who are interested in going that little bit 'deeper' into the wilderness to experience curious beings from the ocean world, while still haveing your everyday comforts great food and great company.
Expeditions are limited, please email. The money you pay to join an expedition goes directly to fund the expedition and pay for your permits, boat fees, accomodations etc. Please email if interested - WildOceanAdventures@hotmail.com
