Responsible Travel

Crillon Tours is committed to wildlife protection and animal welfare, preserving Bolivia’s natural and cultural heritage, reducing plastic waste and energy consumption. We believe that a key part of responsible travel involves giving something back. We actively support a number of social, environmental and wildlife charities in Bolivia.

WTTC alongside Crillon Tours, governments, health experts and other industry associations are working together to achieve effective recovery protocols by developing meaningful action plans that optimize sector-wide recovery efforts.

Part of our protocols include providing the public & private sectors with the insights & toolkits for interaction & implementation to ensure that people are and feel safe. Ultimately, we envision a future of travel which is safe, secure, seamless and provides an authentic and meaningful experience to the traveller across the journey; one which supports the livelihoods of millions and contributes to sustainable economic growth.

The protocols align the private sector behind common standards to ensure the safety of its workforce and travelers as the sector shifts to a new normal.

Please note that while the protocols take into account current WHO and CDC guidelines, they are living documents which we will update as new information becomes available about COVID-19.

Travelife is a leading training, management and certification initiative for tourism companies committed to reaching sustainability.

The Travelife initiative is based on the central role of tour operators and travel agents in the tourism supply chain. Their unique position between suppliers and buyers enables them to influence consumer demand, procurement policies and the development  of destinations. This allows them to contribute significantly to sustainable development and environmental and cultural protection in destinations. Travelife aims to offer  companies the knowledge, solutions  and tools to implement positive change within their businesses and their supply chain.

Crillon Tours is a Travelife engaged travel company committed to sustainability.

La Senda Verde Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 2003 by Vicky Ossio and Marcelo Levy in the subtropical region east side of the Bolivian Andes in South America, dedicated to improving the lives of rescued Native Bolivian Wildlife, providing them with medical attention, food and housing.

Over the past ten years, illegal animal trafficking and deforestation have drastically increased in Bolivia.  Wildlife crime encompasses wildlife trafficking and deforestation, amongst other illegal practices.  After trafficking in arms, drugs and people, wildlife crime is the 3rd most lucrative crime in the world.  As a result of this, the animal population at La Senda Verde has more than quadrupled in the past five years. La Senda Verde is now a refuge to more than 800 rescued animals and 60 species.
