Travelers aboard ships in the Lindblad Expeditions – National Geographic fleet are not just on an adventure of a lifetime, they’re making a positive difference in the communities and environments they visit. Guests who travel aboard the fleet are invited to join our joint conservation and stewardship efforts by contributing to the Lindblad-National Geographic Fund (LEX-NG Fund).
The LEX-NG Fund is designed to support efforts to restore the health and productivity of the ocean at a global scale, and to positively impact the natural and human communities in the regions where Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic travel together. The Fund supports projects at the global, regional, and local level, corresponding to the geographic footprint of the ship from which funds originate. We aim to protect the last wild places in the ocean, support innovative local projects with the potential to be scaled up, and facilitate conservation, research, educational, and community development programs in the places we explore, thereby using travel as a significant force for good.
The Fund is currently supporting Pristine Seas, as well as numerous projects in the Galápagos Islands, Baja California, Southeast Alaska, the Amazon, and Cambodia. Explore the photo gallery above to learn more about some of these incredible projects and the people behind them.
