Choose Your Own Adventure

Tracking Wildlife Worldwide

If your love of earth's creatures outweighs your passion for creature comforts, book a trip with Biosphere Expeditions: You'll get up close and personal with the world's wildlife while collecting data to aid conservation efforts. You don't need a degree in biology—or any particular skills at all, in fact—but it is work to be taken seriously. Each day, you'll head out into the field with scientists to conduct research. If your loved ones can spare you for two weeks, you can track snow leopards in the mountains of Central Asia's Altai Republic, or cheetahs, leopards, and caracals on the central Namibian savanna. Even if you have only a week, you can still get really hands-on—measuring and tagging flatback turtles on the western coast of Australia, for example. Accommodations are on the basic side (tent camps, eco resorts, or small guest lodges); a post-dinner lecture sums up each day's findings.
