Sharing and protecting the wonder of the High Arctic
Lindblad Expeditions supports stewardship efforts in the places we explore, and one way we do that is through the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund. Traveler contributions to the LEX-NG Fund aboard our flagships, National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion, currently support three major National Geographic Society initiatives: Pristine Seas, which seeks to protect 20 of the ocean’s wildest places by 2020; the Grosvenor Teacher Fellow Program, a professional development opportunity for Pre-K–12th grade formal and informal educators; and Early Career Grants, which support future leaders with novel and exploratory projects that span the fields of conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology.

Aboard National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion, the LEX-NG Fund currently supports National Geographic's Pristine Seas Project. Pristine Seas is an exploration, research, and media project to find, survey and help protect the last wild places in the ocean. Pristine Seas is working towards the international goal of protecting 20 of the ocean's wildest places by 2020.
Sponsored by Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic, this project shares the stories of some of the four million people who live in the Arctic and the north, including Svalbard, Greenland, Arctic Canada, Iceland, and beyond.
