This 13-day adventure benefits not just humans, it protects critically endangered animals, too.

Biosphere Expeditions have come up with a trip that takes ethical travelers to a base camp in the heart of the rainforest.2

Volunteers will search the landscape with their noses to the ground looking for elusive Sumatran tiger tracks.

This magnificent beastie is one of the island's rarest and most endangered species, as Indonesia's ever-growing population encroaches further into rainforest habitats.

Volunteers record the tracks, catty-kills and scats, which provide essential research into the lives of these wonderful big cats.

This is life-or-death research that could spell the Sumatran tiger's survival.
