Join Terra Conservation Ambassadors on unique, multidisciplinary EXPLORE Expeditions.
Our expeditions operate in remote, ecologically diverse areas in all regions of the planet, alongside non-profit and government partners that are working tirelessly to protect wildlife, wild land and fragile ecosystems.
By combining training in expeditionary science, photography, ecological science and wildlife biodiversity, Terra’s world-renowned Ambassadors provide expedition participants with the skills and opportunities to effectively contribute to critical ecosystem and wildlife conservation initiatives.
Explore the majestic Maasai Mara with Terra Conservation Initiative Ambassadors and our NGO partner, Mara Elephant Project (MEP), works tirelessly to protect elephants, and in the process conserve the greater Mara ecosystem.
South Africa Expedition
Join us for a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about conservation from behind the scenes, while experiencing the beauty of the untouched wilderness of rural Zululand.
Papua New Guinea Expeditions
Our field expert-led expeditions to Papua New Guinea (PNG) converge on the numerous islands off the northern coast of the main island of New Guinea.
Costa Rica Expeditions
Terra Explore participants will work side by side with Sea Turtle Conservancy scientists, contributing to their work and aiding nesting turtles weighing up to 350 pounds.
Terra Expedition members will visit remote Sea Turtle Conservancy sites to observe nesting turtles, participate in research, experience the local indigenous culture and see the unspoiled beauty of the Caribbean coast of Panama.
TERRA EXPLORE Expeditions are more than a pursued bucket list of adventures. We conceive, plan, and lead immersive and purposeful experiences to forge meaningful and deep connections with local people, their unique culture, and their native habitats.
Our expeditions take us to study spectacular and remote regions, far off the beaten path, where we apply our unique multidisciplinary methodology. During the golden age of exploration, the British Admiralty used a multidisciplinary method of study to understand a new region in its full context. We call this The FitzWinian Method.
TERRA EXPLORE Expeditions opens a portal to the world, with team key leaders in geology, biology, anthropology, and history. We also bring along world-renowned photographers to document our immersive expeditions and teach photography along the way.
To experience a location intimately, we must get away from the crowds, so our maximum group size is 16 participants. A smaller group facilitates more meaningful engagement with local communities, better focus on field studies, and more efficient mobility within remote areas, all leading to an enriched expedition experience.
We are committed to conservation and sustaining the unique character of each location we engage while focusing our expeditions on understanding environment, culture, heritage, and the well-being of native populations. Your participation supports ongoing projects working to protect indigenous cultures and conserve native habitats and wildlife.
Join a TERRA EXPLORE Expedition and find yourself climbing the slopes of an active volcano, trekking deep into a raw tropical rainforest, or swimming past a kaleidoscopic wall of coral reef. Come join the best leaders and guides to explore our planet.
A TERRA EXPLORE Expedition involves multiple facets of study in one adventure. Our team leadership and guides have extensive exploration backgrounds making them accustomed to remote environments and engaging local people. They understand the safety measures and preparation necessary to create an enjoyable and enriching journey in places well off the beaten path.
Each expedition itinerary includes one or more scientific study elements. Guests become citizen scientists working closely with researchers seeking to answer larger questions about Earth and its inhabitants. Get involved in exploration that’s making real impact from the remote Amazon Research Center to Greenland’s Glaciers.
A safe and enjoyable journey begins with thorough preparedness. Our leaders have extensive experience in the most remote regions of the planet, and they share their expertise with you. From gear to immunizations, field methods to photography, you will be fully prepared for an expedition of a lifetime.
Join us as we venture out to understand the world around us and to give back to communities on the front lines of environmental and wildlife conservation. Each expedition is designed to provide you with new perspectives on what’s possible, a stronger voice to tell your story, and empowerment to effect positive changes in our world.
