Book your holiday through Wildlife Travel and support Cumbria Wildlife Trust at the same time.

Wildlife Travel was set up in 1988 to raise funds for nature conservation through all 47 Wildlife Trusts. Wildlife Travel believe there is much more to a wildlife holiday than the list of species seen.

Supporting conservation and showing travellers the whole world of wildlife, during an easy but comprehensive natural history holiday are guiding principles when planning their trips.

All profits are donated to the Wildlife Trusts and every holiday is designed to support nature conservation at the destination. Cumbria Wildlife Trust will receive donations on an individual basis simply if you live in the area.

Programme

There is a programme of around 20 group holidays each year to the UK, Europe and worldwide, incorporating historical, cultural and conservation aspects of the areas visited, as well as wildlife watching.

Specialist local guides and experienced UK leaders, often with links to the Wildlife Trusts, ensure that everyone gets the most out of their holiday.

Destinations

The programme changes each year, but regular destinations include the Isles of Scilly and Mull, the wildflower-rich Burren in Ireland, the French pre-Alps by train, Cyprus for its spring orchids and the midnight sun of Iceland. Further afield, worldwide holiday destinations range from Iceland to New Zealand, Costa Rica to Namibia.

So whether it's the unique wildlife of the Galapagos Island, the rich birdlife of the Romanian Danube Delta, the beautiful wild flowers of the Mediterranean or the natural history of Britain's coats and islands, join Wildlife Travel to discover a new world.
