Global Stewardship

Inspiring people to explore and care about the planet

Lindblad Expeditions cares deeply about the places we explore. We’re inspired every day by our travelers, who have collectively contributed more than $15 million to support our stewardship efforts. And we’re proud to commit 100% of these donations to impactful projects in the places we travel: improving the health and viability of our world’s oceans, coastlines, and coastal communities through the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund; furthering National Geographic’s conservation and education priorities; collaborating with regional partners; creating economic opportunities through the LEX-NG Artisan Fund; and beyond.

The energy and engagement our guests demonstrate proves that travel—when harnessed effectively—can have a lasting, positive impact on the planet. Please explore the regions below to learn more about our key initiatives.


One of our guiding principles is to positively impact the areas in which we explore and work. That is why we are proud to have successfully completed a comprehensive single-use plastic elimination program across our entire fleet. Lindblad ships are now 100 % free of all single-use plastic bottles, cups, straws, and stirrers. The effort also supposts National Geographic's "Planet or Plastic?" campaign which is aimed at raising awareness about reducing the amount of plastic in the world's oceans.
