March 2023: From Ridges to Reefs – A Costa Rica Conservation Tour  FULL

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

Here are some of the steps that our tour operators are taking to promote both health and confidence.

Small group size. We limit our travel groups to just 12-18 travelers. The small-group atmosphere allows for better social distancing while still feeling close to nature.

Additional vehicles. Our tour operators will be adding additional vehicles to allow for more space between each passenger.

Remote destinations. Many of our trips are at secluded locations with few other travelers.

Enhanced cleanliness and sanitation. Our tour operators are following guidelines from the WHO and CDC for enhanced daily cleaning of vehicles and rooms.

Revised booking and cancellation policies. We have provided links on each trip page to direct you to refund and cancellation information for each of our trips. Some of our tour operators are waiving change fees and refunding deposits in the event of cancellations.

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.

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 that offset the carbon emissions of your trip and also support local conservation projects.

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.
