Life’ An Adventure commitment to sustainability ensures our guests enjoy, appreciate and learn the importance of preserving and protecting the landscapes we visit and its inhabitants.
The ethos of our walking holidays across Australia is to minimise our footprint, working towards a leave no trace outcome and emphasing the elements of conservation in all elements of operations across the business.
We are firmly against businesses that disturb our National Parks by the construction of buildings and structures. On all tours we utlilise existing accommodation close to the trails, which not only support these local accommodation providers, but also minimises our impact on the environment.
We also support local communities by buying local produce, working closely with local businesses such as cruise companies, chefs, wineries and small local cafes with the same environmental ethos as us, as well as hiring local guides.
Eco Tourism Accreditation
We hold Eco Tourism Accreditation with EcoTourism Australia, this accreditation is given to ecologically sustainable tourism companies with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that foster environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservations.
Green Guardian Program
Life’s An Adventure has partnered with the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service to promote environmental conservation through the Green Guardian program. As part of the Green Guardian program, our guests are given conservation volunteer opportunities during their walks.
Our project is working with PWS, Birdlife Tasmania and the Department’s Resource Management and Conservation Branch. Whilst walking along the wild and remote beaches in Tasmania, we will identify a number of threatened and vulnerable shorebird and migratory shorebird species. This important work will aid in assessing shorebird populations and habitat quality, both of which have been seriously affected by human activity. The vital information collected will be uploaded into the Department’s Natural Values Atlas where it will assist in improving conservation outcomes, planning and decision making.
