Elm Wildlife Tours

Elm Wildlife Tours

Elm Wildlife tours provide an outstanding ecotourism service on the Otago Peninsula and through tourism they privately fund conservation efforts to save the Yellow eyed penguins and other NZ species.

They are an Ocean Champion because they put the wellbeing of the animals over profit. They could buy more buses and take more people to the private beach where the conservation area is located, but they don’t as they are really committed to the conservation of the critically endangered Yellow Eyed Penguin. They have been doing lots of reforesting with native species and trapping of invasive pests for over 15 years without any government funds.

Nominated by: Maria Jesus Valdes on 24 January 2017
