This is one of several trips ECNT is offering to beautiful places around the Top End. These experiences are about enjoying yourself, getting to know the landscapes and learning about their natural heritage. We’ll also discuss how we can respond to various threats to animals and plants in these places. The Litchfield and Kakadu trips will be organised and led by Andy Peart, an experienced bushwalking tour guide, and accompanied by local ecologists David Liddle and Louie Boyle-Bryant, as well as other experts where available. Short trips in the Darwin area are lead by other ECNT volunteers with help from knowledgeable people willing to share their insights about each area. Keep an eye on our events page for these trips.
These trips are not tours, but private excursions which you’re welcome to participate in. In return we ask that you make a financial contribution, which will be used to help ECNT to continue and improve the work we do. The coordination of these trips is all done by volunteers, which allows your donation to go directly into supporting ECNT’s activities to protect and enhance nature in the Top End.
Thanks to Ethical Adventures Tours for their support for this trip.
