Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris
Conservation Is Our Battle Cry!
Our company ethos has always regarded conservation as inseparable from responsible tourism. We struggle with the dilemma that traveling worldwide expends climate-changing carbon. However, we wholeheartedly believe that traveling with us will cultivate your passion for conserving our beautiful world, while stimulating each destination’s local economies.
Connect with like-minded travelers, leaders, and operators that share the same passion for wildlife, travel, and conservation as you. When we travel responsibly, we help protect and preserve the places that can intrigue and inspire others for many generations to come.
Cheesemans’ goal is to ensure that each of our destinations benefit on a grass-roots level. To do so, we are working with local operators in each destination to create an interactive list to facilitate this effort. This is a work in progress, so please check back as we develop this further.
We take you to amazing destinations, navigating far and wide, and when we do, we recognize that the world pays a steep price. Taking this into account, we have made each trip carbon neutral.
And, by signing up with us, you pledge to offset your carbon emissions to and from your trip, either through your favorite offsetting organization or by using our handy carbon calculator.
Together we will fight climate change!

Organizations We Support
Cheesemans’ supports a variety of organizations that align with our mission of cultivating your passion for conserving our beautiful world. We helped these organizations through primary funding, active fundraising, or regular volunteering.
Cofounded in 2015 by Ted Cheeseman, Happywhale engages citizen scientists to identify individual marine mammals for fun and for science, to increase global understanding and caring for marine environments. Whales are identified by their unique markings using auto-recognition technology and submitted photos, contributing data and a better understanding. Through collaborative research and conservation, Happywhale is now able to identify most living humpback whales in the North Pacific, creating a powerful tool for conservation science.
Cheesemans’ provided primary funding in its first three years and fundraises for them during Antarctic voyage auctions.
