Nine projects receive funding from the Hurtigruten Foundation

We’re delighted to see that our partner Hurtigruten is supporting nine projects that go above and beyond to preserve endangered wildlife, battle plastic waste and marine litter, and support the local communities where the cruise line operates. These are:

Aktiv I Friluft who are on a mission to rid the longest fjord in Svalbard of litter. Through Project Isfjorden, they’ll clean parts of the fjord currently inaccessible to other organisations.

Bruktikken is a second-hand store in Longyearbyen that aims to create a more sustainable community by reducing waste and social inequality in the remote Arctic town.

Charles Darwin Foundation who, following a three-year absence due to a lack of resources and COVID-19, can now resume their data-gathering project to protect Waved Albatross in the Galápagos Islands.

Fundación de Conservación Jocotoco working to conserve the critically endangered Galápagos Petrel by monitoring their activity, fencing nesting sites and eradicating invasive species.

The Lofoten Council will establish the first ecosystem accounting pilot in Norway with the aim of ensuring sustainable management of nature, resources and biodiversity. 

Prince William Sound Science Centre conducting a research programme to determine the impact of plastic pollution on shorebirds in Alaska’s Copper River Delta.

Tarevokterne arranging dives to help kelp forests flourish in the seas of northern Norway. They also hold several outreach programmes in schools and local communities.

Universidad de los Andes – Two scientists will investigate the genetic diversity and population structure of humpback whales and leopard seals in Antarctica with the help of Hurtigruten Expeditions’ guests.

Oceanites collect data on penguins and seabird species on the Antarctic Peninsula to learn more about climate change and how to protect the Antarctic environment.
