Established in 2003 by GER® Member @Grootbos with goals of uplifting the community and promoting conservation, the @grootbosfoundation drives a number of projects that are impacting lives. One of those is the Growing the Future organic farm and this geodesic dome is part of the work they are doing and training they are offering.

A Wyoming dude ranch, Fellow Member @flatcreekranchwyo has 5 private log cabins with a focus on rustic luxury. The cabins are cosy and a hidden gem in the wilderness. The ranch is completely off-grid, operating an entirely sustainable way of life. Since its inception in 1921 the ranch has been dedicated to conservation. #init4thelongrun #flatcreekranch #wyoming #usa #unitedstates #conservation #ecolodge #ecotravel #travel4good #travelgram #logcabin #rusticluxury #sustainability #sustainabletravel #luxurytravel #travelgram #instatravel #environment

Overlooking the Mara River and surrounded by the Enonkishu Conservancy, an award-winning conservation area, Fellow Member @houseinthewild offers up morning tea with a view that is hard to beat. Here on the edge of the epic Maasai Mara in Kenya huge herds of buffalo and elephant, prowling big cats and plentiful plains game roam free and straight past the doorstep. The Enonkishu Conservancy is a community led conservation initiative founded by the owners of House in the Wild. The purpose is to create a balance between conservation and community, with a focus on the heritage, the people, and the natural resources of an increasingly fragile ecosystem. #init4thelongrun #houseinthewild #Kenya #magicalKenya #conservation #wildlife #community #ecotravel #travel4good #travelgram #sustainability #sustainabletravel #safari #environment #planetearth #enonkishuconservancy #maasaimara

Located on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, GER Member @laparioscr has successfully restored areas degraded by human activities. Education for the local community plays a huge part in their conservation efforts. Visitor experiences revolve around nature with experienced guides like Danilo offering keen insight into the rainforest as well as marine life. #Repost @laparioscr with @make_repost ・・・ With his +20 years experience in guiding Danilo has a deep understanding of the rainforest and its critters, his original love however is marine biology and he is most in his element showing guests the impressive amount of sea life around the Matapalo area. #init4thelongrun #conservation #laparios #osapeninsula #costarica #travel4good #community #sustainability #sustainabletravel #environment #ecotravel #ecolodge #planetearth #instatravel #travelgram

Approaching the rest of the week like... Magnificent shot of a serious cat fight at Fellow Member Kicheche Mara Camp, one of the amazing @kicheche_safari_camps in Kenya. The Mara North conservancy, where the camp is located, has one of the lowest tourist and vehicle densities in the ecosystem. Managed volume and strict land-use plans, designed so that all parties benefit, have made this possible. Wildlife wanders freely on traditional routes as the property has been left unfenced. 📷: @steve.underwood #init4thelongrun #kichechemaracamp #kichechecamps #masaimara #maasaimara #maranorthconservancy #kenya #magicalkenya #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #ecotravel #environment #ecolodge #conservation #lion #africa #nature #planetearth #sustainability #sustainabletravel #travelgram

Tourism unites with coastal communities, non-profit organisations and government agencies in order to drive conservation results at Fellow Member @misool.resort. The resort forms part of Misool Private Marine Reserve in Raja Ampat in Indonesia where 300,000 acres of the world's most significant coral reefs are protected. One of the reserve's multiple islands is home to the Misool Resort. A former shark-finning beach is now a high-end private island resort in strong partnership with the local community and helping to fund the conservation efforts of its sister non-profit organisation, @misool.foundation.

This pasture is on its way to being a forest again thanks to the team at GER Member @sinaldovale. They have planted hundred of seedlings from many different species on this hill. The project was coordinated by their partner, permaculturist Jorge Nava. This retreat and education centre lies in Brazil’s lush Atlantic Rainforest (Mata Atlantica), just 50km from Rio de Janeiro. The purpose has always been to be a catalyst for tangible social and environmental change. #init4thelongrun #sinaldovale #brazil #southamerica #rainforest #environment #ecolodge #environmentalchange #planetearth #sustainability #sustainabletravel #travel4good #conservation #mataatlantica

The "Trophées de la Vidéo Touristique" is a unique event in France to promote creativity, originality, and innovation in the promotion of tourism via video. The third edition was held recently in Cannes and we are thrilled that Fellow Member @ecocamp was declared the winner in the category of "Best Video by a Professional of Tourism"! This is the second award the video produced by @timothydhalleine has achieved. "Adventure is for All" promotes inclusive tourism through the story of Alvaro Silberstein, the first person to hike the “W” trek in Torres Del Paine National Park in a wheelchair. This incredible story will continue to be used to spread the word that tourism is not exclusive, but available to all. #init4thelongrun #ecocamp #patagonia #video #adventureisforall #inclusivetourism #sustainabletourism #award #tourism #tourismvideo #travel4good #inclusivetravel #travelgram

Views stretching across the Laikipia Plateau as the sun goes down and dinner is served at Fellow Member Sasaab, part of @thesafaricollection.

After a full day experiencing parts of the 130,000-acre ranch of GER® Member @refugioecologicocaiman, guests at Baiazinha Lodge can relax at the pool and watch the sunset. There are unrivalled wildlife viewing opportunities for guests at Caiman's two luxury lodges, who are also exposed to first-hand experiences of conservation initiatives. The success of the tourism side of the business is largely due to the ranch community of staff and their families who have extensive knowledge and experience in cattle ranching. The continual enhancement of the community's wellbeing is part of Caiman's focus in order to provide the next generation with further opportunities to preserve the Pantanal environment. #init4thelongrun #experienceCaiman #CaimanEcologicalRefuge #pantanal #Brazil #the4Cs #conservation #community #culture #commerce #environment #wildlife #travel4good #travel #sustainability #sustainabletravel #travelgram #planetearth

Jumps and drops at the Air Time Mountain Bike Class at Fellow Member Comrie Croft in the middle of Scotland. They also hold skills classes for women, evolution mountain bike classes for skills training, and classes for children and adult beginners.

One of East Africa’s original fully hosted, family-owned lodges, and the first ecolodge in Laikipia, @boranalodge is located on the 35,000-acre ranch of Fellow Member @boranaconservancy A traditional farm in the early 19th Century, Borana became one of the first ranches in Kenya to develop tourism and recognise wildlife as an asset. Guests are encouraged to get involved in the various conservation initiatives, whether by tracking and sighting rhino with the scouts, monitoring lion movements, or participating in the necessary darting and collaring work. #init4thelongrun #boranaconservancy #boranaranch #borana #laikipia #magicalKenya #Kenya #safari #EastAfrica #ecotravel #ecolodge #sustainabletravel #sustainability #ecotourism #travel4good #wildlife #conservation #instatravel #travelgram #environment #planetearth

Affiliate Member @boutecohotels is all about making a positive difference - something that certainly makes them part of our story #init4thelongrun #travel4good #sustainability #sustainabletravel #planetearth #ecotravel #ecotourism #travel #travelgram #boutecohotels #Repost @boutecohotels with @make_repost ・・・ 🎥 Bouteco’s Call For Change — part one of our four-min video exploring how we might change our individual habits around plastic. Huge thanks to @renskincare for funding our film which reflects on the causes of the world’s plastic problem rather than just lamenting the symptoms, with wise words from TerraCycle’s Tom Szaky who we interviewed at @hclublondon , and where the film will be shown before every screening during the Bigger Picture, their sustainability week in November. The plastic problem has been on our minds for a long time — not just since David Attenborough made it go mainstream — and we salute all who have finally woken up to the problem and who are committed to changing our habits for the better. #Bouteco #CleanToPlanet #StopThinkDiscuss 🎞 filmmaker: @kubanowski Thank you to all who helped make our film possible @terracycleuk @hclublondon @readingroomsmargate @walpolebayhotel_jane @visitthanet
