Paul Gauguin Cruises Partners with the Wildlife Conservation Society to Bring Nature & Adventure Onboard
Get the best of both worlds on a cruise to the South Pacific as Paul Gauguin Cruises partners with Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) to bring you Wildlife Discovery Series and Stewards of Nature – two entertaining and informative programs about marine wildlife and habitat. WCS aims to protect half of the planet’s biodiversity with a lasting impact on mankind.
‘Wildlife Discovery Series’ will feature onboard lectures delivered by some of the world’s most fascinating scientists, oceanographers and conservationists aboard the m/s Paul Gauguin. This will be available to guests on select sailings and will be included in cruise fares.
‘Stewards of Nature’ will aim to inspire children (ages 7-17) to protect biodiversity and preserve the environment for a healthy and sustainable planet. There will be a combination of island and beach excursions, science activities, crafts, games, and other adventures to engage kids throughout the voyage. This itinerary is available on summer and holiday sailings for a nominal fee.
