Expeditions and discovery

Generation Conservation members have the unique opportunity to visit CI field sites and experience the organization's work firsthand.

By traveling to exotic locations and directly engaging in these projects on the ground, members develop a deep connection to the natural world that CI seeks to protec​​t and better understand the challenges and opportunities surrounding CI's global initiatives.

Beyond their educational value, these excursions also offer members opportunities to visit remote locations in relative comfort that they might otherwise be unable to access. Finally, by participating in these trips and sharing stories of their adventures with peers, Generation Conservation members make a valuable contribution to CI’s long-term conservation goals. Past trips include:
