Before you so much as leave your home in the morning, you have had an impact
on the environment. Each of us has a responsibility to care for our planet,
people and wildlife.
Its in our best interests to protect our precious resources, and Africa is a very
important place indeed.
At Hayden Turner Private Safaris, we aim to be as responsible and accurate as
possible in calculating our carbon footprint, sourcing our supplies and choosing
our business partners.
We carefully inform each of our guests about our strategy on environmental stewardship,
and work with Reduce My
Footprint to minimise our carbon footprint.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and climate change are complex issues, and they
generate business challenges that we are constantly trying to overcome.
We can advise our guests and discuss tangible ways in which they can lessen their impact
on the local environments and societies when they travel.
If our guests want to donate products or funds to the African countries they visit, as
many do, we will ensure that those gifts go to the right place. This can be discussed
and arranged before, during or after the safari.
"The major thing I learned from Hayden apart from his incredible knowledge on animals,
the environment and nature was the respect he showed every human being with whom we
came into contact."
