Following a successful Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas, award-winning expedition travel company AE Expeditions is donating funds to three conservation-focused organisations on behalf of Virtuoso Travel Advisors.
Advisors who visited Aurora’s sales and marketing teams at the Virtuoso Globetrotting and Cruise Café events were given the opportunity to donate USD $5 each, to be directed to one of three organisations that AE Expeditions partners with via its Women in Conservation programme:
Deep Hope in partnership with Dr. Sylvia Earle
Ocean Generation in partnership with Jo Ruxton
Native Movement in partnership with Bernadette Demientieff
The response to this initiative was so heartfelt that Aurora has decided to double its donation to USD $2,500 across the three charities. “In lieu of giving out branded gifts and collateral during Virtuoso Travel Week, we wanted to focus on highlighting these organisations, the conservation and social justice work they do, and the inspiring women that lead them,” commented Aurora Expeditions’ CMO Hayley Peacock-Gower. “Aurora is passionate about taking real actions to care for the planet, and our Women in Conservation programme is just one of many initiatives that we havedeveloped within our ever-evolving Sustainability in Action programme.”
Aurora recently released its inaugural impact report, the first comprehensive reviewof the Australian-owned company’s purpose, vision and values, and an outline of its commitment to sustainability and progress to date.
