Thank you for your support.

The Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund supports projects that address the health and viability of our world’s oceans, coastlines, and coastal communities. We aim to engage and inspire people from all backgrounds, building unprecedented capacity in a new generation of marine leaders, while strengthening established conservation initiatives.

You may designate your support in one of three ways:

1) to our global National Geographic initiatives: Pristine Seas, Early Career Grants, and Grosvenor Teacher Fellows;
2) to a specific region our fleet visits [see list below]; or
3) to the LEX-NG Fund broadly, which allows us to direct funding to the projects and regions most in need.

With generous travelers and donors like you, we are working to inspire more and more people to explore and care about the planet. Thank you again for your generous support!
