We’ve shared the same mission for several decades — to protect the world’s wild places and take you to see them. Now we’re sharing an avenue for telling you the stories of conservation and travel.

We’ve combined the storytelling power of the world’s top nature travel provider with the world’s leading conservation organization to tell you, in words, pictures and videos, about the top places in the world to visit and protect.

WWF and Nat Hab have worked together for more than a decade. The more we see how closely aligned our travel and conservation philosophies are, the stronger our ties get. On our new blog, you’ll read that in the words of Candice Gaukel Andrews, one of the top nature and conservation columnists in the country. You’ll see it in the photography of Brad Josephs, Eric Rock and Dave Luck, some of the best nature photographers in the world. You’ll understand the impassioned work of WWF scientists and researchers all over the world through the stories and interviews we share about them.

Run by a corps of former newspaper and magazine journalists, Good Nature Travel is the top go-to source for news, features and photography about conservation travel.

Visit our official travel blog and let us know what you think!

Over the course of four years—from 2010 to 2013— 441 new species were scientifically identified in the Amazon. The discoveries include a species of titi monkey that purrs like a cat and a new passion flower that sprouts spaghetti-like filaments from the center of the bloom.

Various scientists described the new species and WWF compiled the list of 258 plants, 84 fish, 58 amphibians, 22 reptiles, 18 birds, and one mammal.

The vast Amazon landscape spans eight countries and one in 10 known species on Earth lives there. Millions of species live here and most are still undescribed.

Here's a look at a selection of recent discoveries:
