We are so excited to hear that an Andean Spectacled Bear was spotted on Thursday, November 25th by a group of Italian tourists on the last day of their Inca Trail Trek.

Great News for Galapagos Conservation!

Great News for Galapagos Conservation!
We here at Wildland Adventures are thrilled to hear the news that conservationists associated with the State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry have brought back a unique species of giant tortoise on the island of Espanola! Once thought to be extinct in the late 50s, Chelonoidis hoodensis has grown from 15 individuals to now 1000 tortoises, each of which can potentially live up to 200 years. This is a major win for the diversity of giant tortoises on the islands, and our congratulations go out to Professor James Gibbs and his team. All Wildland Adventures travelers to the Galapagos have at least one opportunity to visit tortoise breeding centers like the one responsible for this tremendous success, and our travelers’ optional contribution to the International Galapagos Tour Operators Association goes toward programs exactly like this one as well as other conservation endeavors. We invite you to...
