    in worldwide destinations

    July 10, 2024— Finisterra Travel is proud to announce their membership in the Adventure Travel
    Conservation Fund (ATCF)
    , an international nonprofit focused on funding on-the-ground conservation
    projects around the world. The ATCF provides members in the travel and outdoor industry an avenue to
    directly support projects that are critical to protecting the future of adventure travel.


    “Adventure and outdoor organizations have an opportunity to come together as members of the ATCF to
    protect international travel destinations where we all love to explore, learn and play,” says Soraya Shattuck,
    ATCF Executive Director. “Without the conservation of these unique environments, cultures and
    communities, we risk losing the very experiences that we seek when we travel.”


    The adventure tourism industry is highly dependent on conserving the world’s natural and cultural
    resources, which is why Finisterra Travel and ATCF members from across the globe are uniting to protect
    threatened communities, cultures and wild places for current and future generations. Once a year, the
    ATCF awards grants to organizations seeking conservation funding. Grant recipients are nominated and
    voted on by members of ATCF, whose membership dues fund the chosen conservation projects.
    “The adventure travel community has the power, the resources, and the responsibility to make an
    incredible impact on the world,” said outdoor industry pioneer Steve Barker, Founder of Eagle Creek and
    ATCF Board Chair. “Through ATCF, companies around the globe unite their influence and passion to support
    organizations that protect, preserve and improve destinations, resources, and indigenous cultures so they’ll
    be around for years to come.”


    “Since its inception, Finisterra Travel has been committed to sustainable and responsible tourism. Our
    support of the ACTF allows us to extend our reach even further to support projects that truly make a
    difference,” says Keri Montgomery, Owner and Founder, Finisterra.
