Over at Intrepid we are passionate about responsible wildlife viewing. Our Intrepid Travel wildlife tours are designed to get travelers close to nature without compromising animals' ability to live and thrive in their natural habitats. We feel creating a community that understands and appreciates animals' lives is just one small contribution we can make to responsible and sustainable travel.
This month we hosted a photo contest asking travelers to submit their best wildlife photography. The results were breathtaking, reminding us all just how beautiful the animals on this earth are.
These 15 photos are a true celebration of responsible wildlife encounters.
