Zegrahm's Boost For Expedition Travel

Zegrahm Expeditions is committed to raising awareness and understanding of the challenges faced in each region that the company visits and, with that in mind, a recent voyage in Malaysia gave gave guests the opportunity to tour the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center.

Zegrahm’s donation to Sepilok will help complete a new enclosure for Nonong (above), a 12-year-old female gorilla that suffers from cerebral malaria, which paralysed her left hand and foot. Because of her condition, she will never be able to go back into the wild and will be a permanent resident at the centre. The new facility will ensure Nonong will have plenty of space to play while still enabling her to foster relationships with the other orangutans.

Zegrahm incorporates giving back into many of the company’s itineraries; an upcoming opportunity is the Rain Forests and Reefs expedition taking place in February 2014.  Guests will visit a convent and orphanage in Isla de Providencia, Colombia, and donate school supplies to the local children. The 2-week expedition is priced from $11,980.
