Preserving Wildlife and Wild Places

At the core of our company philosophy is the belief that while celebrating the wonders of the wild world today, we must make every effort to conserve them for tomorrow. There has never been a more crucial time in our history to prioritize the long-term health of our global ecosystems.

 

At Apex, we believe our role in preserving the planet’s wilderness is two-fold. Through our expeditions into remote areas around the world, we are able to open travelers’ eyes and hearts to astonishing natural treasures and inspire new attitudes and behaviors that support sustainable and harmonious living. And we directly support communities and organizations that are fighting to keep and restore the balance of nature all over the globe. We are proud to support the critical work being done by these exemplary non-profit organizations and feel honored to play a role in moving toward a brighter future.

Habitat Restoration Project

Arguably one of the most awe-inspiring islands on our planet, South Georgia has been a key conservation focus since the introduction of invasive rodents to the island in the 18th century began wreaking havoc on nesting seabird populations. Read about the South Georgia Heritage Trust's rat eradication success.

Ethiopian Wolf Conservation

The world’s rarest canid, the handsome Ethiopian Wolf, clings to survival with fewer than 500 individuals holding reign as the apex predators of Ethiopia’s high mountain habitats. Only through the tireless efforts of the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Program (EWCP) can hopes of a future for this treasured species be kept alive.

Protecting Raja Ampat

There is no more biodiverse a region of our underwater world than Raja Ampat in eastern Indonesia. The Misool Foundation has been passionately protecting 300,000 acres of this precious habitat from ruin while educating and empowering local communities about the critical importance of its long-term preservation.

Madagascar's Lost Forest

There is no biological melting pot quite like Madagascar, home to a whopping five percent of the world’s fauna and flora! But Madagascar’s wilderness is slipping from the world forever. The Rainforest Trust has prioritized a project that aims to fully protect and study a newly discovered island of untouched forest in Madagascar’s center.

Fighting Against Shark Finning

Although WildAid reports an astonishing 80% decrease in the demand for shark fin soup in China, in no small part due to the persistent awareness campaigns, the practice of shark finning is still on the rampage in other Southeast Asian countries. WildAid is working hard to secure further restrictions to the global shark fin trade.

Saving Borneo’s Rainforest

The Kalimantan lowland rainforest in southern Borneo is currently a stronghold for the critically endangered Bornean Orangutan and other imperiled endemic species such as the Bornean White-bearded Gibbon and Proboscis Monkey. Rainforest Trust is working to designate 385,000 acres as a permanent protected area.
