Biosphere Expeditions is an award-winning, non profit organisation offering hands-on wildlife conservation expeditions as an adventure with a purpose for everyone.

Expeditions include snow leopards of the Altai mountains, monkeys and macaws of the Amazon, wolves and migratory birds of the Black Sea coast, cheetahs in Namibia, and whales and dolphins of the Azores. They start from 12 days and 990 [pounds sterling]--two thirds of the cost is spent directly on the project in the host country.
