Thinkjungle was founded in 2012 by Ash Card to organise top quality tours and accommodation in the world's tropics. The inspiration for the business was to help conserve rainforests and tropical areas through ecotourism, with an emphasis on how business can play a role in forest conservation. For the first year of this agreement Thinkjungle are making donations of £25 or £50 per booking for WLT’s Buy an Acre projects. Because you make the booking direct, you receive a lower rate than travel agencies and an equal or lower rate than the tour operators themselves. The tours and lodges are hand-picked for their experience and highly regarded reviews, are run by exceptional staff and offer outstanding wildlife viewing in a comfortable setting. The majority come with recommendations from nature or travel companies including National Geographic or Outside Magazine. All of the tours are chosen to offer customer satisfaction and then go through Thinkjungle’s own filter of high standards for environmental awareness and wildlife observation. Their mission is to raise awareness of the tropics and how irreplaceable they are.
Affectionately known as Dorilla Ash is seen here with a Woolly Monkey. A former pet of an Iquitos resident living along the shore of the Tahuayo River, a tributary of the Amazon River, near Tahuayo Lodge in Peru, she was rehabilitated back to the wild by staff at the Lodge. Every now and again the Tahuayo guides like to see how she is doing and Ash was fortunate to be there when they checked in on her.
