Gondwana Ecotours and small group travel

To Protect the Land, Jared Sternberg Turned to Tourism
“The New Orleans resident started Gondwana Ecotours in 2013, the same year he graduated from Tulane University Law School in that city. He studied environmental and human rights with the idea of helping indigenous and underserved populations preserve land and resources, but after completing service work in locations including Ghana, Ecuador, Alaska and Nicaragua, Mr. Sternberg became convinced that tourism could achieve the same goals. This year, Gondwana offered trips to six destinations on three continents. (The name Gondwana refers to an ancient landmass.)”

Jared Sternberg, Founder of Gondwana Ecotours
