Iceland Supermarkets have done much to raise awareness of the plight facing orangutans in Indonesia, and their pledge to stop selling self-branded products containing Palm Oil is awesome and a positive step in the conservation effort.
Philanthropic travelers can also make a positive contribution on an Impact Destinations trip to Indonesia. Travellers will accompany a family of rescued orang-utans from an area facing loss of habitat due to Palm Oil production, and witness their release in a protected reserve where they can thrive.
This is a true adventure for generous travellers that combines the finest luxury that Indonesia has to offer with an immersive experience releasing the orangutans in a wild and remote location.
Impact Destinations specialises in sustainable luxury trips that blend sightseeing with a unique experience that is unlocked by a philanthropic donation.
Witnessing the release of an orangutan family is one example of the unique experiences we offer; others include:
- A day trip on the water with a marine biologist working to save hammerhead sharks in Costa Rica;
- Witnessing a rhino relocation from a heavily poached reserve in South Africa to a safe one in Botswana
- Tracking arctic foxes in return to a donation to WWF in Iceland
