“Ignorance breeds environmental destruction. A life long mission for me personally is to erode that ignorance with knowledge and understanding about conservation. One of the best ways to do that is through sustainable tourism. If you have visited a unique place in the world with an expert naturalist guide, your outlook changes. Many of our guests become inspired to be ambassadors for protecting the place they visit. When I started Great Plains Conservation it was all about this single endeavor; to attract people to our camps and lodges so they can be exposed to sustainable living alongside nature in the most fulfilling way and join us as partners in conserving the planet.” Dereck Joubert, Founder and CEO of Great Plains Conservation, filmmaker, and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence
