We walk the talk!
At Eagle Wing Tours, we don’t just talk about conservation. We fuel it. Through our participation in 1% for the Planet (see below), our per guest Wildlife Fee (see below), and carbon offsets we’ve raised more than $668,000 since 2011. These funds are dispersed to a broad range of conservation organizations who are working hard to restore and protect the wildlife of the Salish Sea and beyond.
“Environmental stewardship is at the heart of everything we do at Eagle Wing. Our customers can take pride in knowing that their tourism dollars are leaving a positive impact on the whales and the marine environment we all depend on.”
— Brett Soberg and Don Stewart, owners, Eagle Wing Tours
One of our partners: Goldstream Salmonid Enhancement Association
1% for the Planet
In 2011, we were Victoria’s first whale watching company to join 1% for the Planet. As a member, we donate 1% of our total annual revenue to non-profit groups dedicated to sustainability and environmental protection. For a complete list of the organizations we support, see below.
In 2013, we were the first whale watching company in Victoria to add a per guest wildlife fee to support conservation research in the region. The fee, currently $5, is donated directly to three organizations: the Center for Whale Research, the Pacific Salmon Foundation and the Wild 4 Whales Foundation.
