Cox & Kings believes that exploring distant regions and encountering different cultures is a privilege that comes with responsibility.
They’re working with Cool Earth to minimise the impact of their long haul activities and making sure the balance is tipped towards positive environmental action by protecting endangered eco-systems and supporting indigenous communities.
The company is already safeguarding 83 acres of forest in Peru, locking in nearly 22,000 tonnes of CO2 that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere through deforestation.
Cox & Kings is currently focusing on Cool Earth's Asháninka project in Peru, a country which has proved to be their most popular Latin American. Now visitors can appreciate its unique qualities knowing that they can help safeguard one of its most precious resources - the rainforest.
"The scheme we have set up with Cool Earth aims first to make our clients aware of the enormous positive impact that Cool Earth can make in the regions in which it operates, and also how their money can directly help to save significant tracts of precious tropical forests. "
Philip Hamilton-Grierson, Cox & Kings' Marketing Director
Cox & Kings is partnering with 16 Asháninka villages to save 1,714 acres of rainforest in Peru.
The Asháninka are Peru’s largest indigenous nation and until now have lived deep in the heart of the amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep. Our Asháninka Project is in the Ene Valley, one of the world’s most at-risk areas. Illegal logging and the cocaine trade are destroying the forest. With the support of Cox & Kings, Cool Earth is linking villages together to shield millions of acres of neighbouring forest.
