SAM Travel Peru is concerned about the environment and believes it is our social responsibility to help preserve and conserve our planet. An example of this is deforestation in the Andes, there are numerous mountain slopes that are void of trees. Trees are critical for their beauty, their ability to protect the environment and its wildlife. The local livestock and people living near them are part of the deforestation issue as well. We are raising awareness by teaching these people and the surrounding regions that by planting trees. We can create a positive cycle in replenishing what is being cut down and replanting a tree in its place.
“Our company’s mission and goals are to lead by example by being a socially responsible tour operator. As we trek through the Andes day after day, we want to share our love, respect and commitment to our local communities and surrounding environment by holding events such as our annual clean up campaigns. We raise awareness and also help maintain our beautiful and pristine trails by pickup up litter left behind. Below are some of the many social projects, we take part in throughout the year!”
