Explore Conservation Around the World
Love nature. Will travel.
Join us as we explore natural wonders across the world. By traveling with the Natural Resources Foundation, you’ll have intimate, unique experiences abroad that are always focused on nature, wildlife, and the conservation efforts of other organizations. We coordinate trips internationally as well as expeditions to some incredible places right here in the United States.

Why travel with the Foundation?
Unique, intimate experiences. We partner with travel experts and conservation groups to provide experiences you can’t get anywhere else.
Small group size. We limit our travel groups to just 12-18 travelers. The small-group atmosphere allows you to get closer to your guide, each other, and most importantly, nature.
Nature-focused. Many guided travel experiences focus on culture and art. While we appreciate the human world, we travel to explore nature, wildlife, and learn about conservation efforts around the world.
Build new relationships. Travel with a Foundation representative and other like-minded Foundation members.
Positive travel impact. We partner with companies dedicated to the sustainability of our planet and reducing our carbon footprint. Our travel partners support on-the-ground conservation efforts in the countries where we travel.
No planning needed. We take the stress out of itinerary planning; everything is taken care of for you.
By traveling with the Foundation, you help support conservation efforts here in Wisconsin as well as local projects in the places we visit.

Since 2006, we’ve led dozens of trips across the globe. From the mountains of Patagonia to birding hotspots in Costa Rica, from the glaciers of Iceland to savannas of Tanzania, we want to explore the world with you.
