Bushtracks - a California-based tour operator has adopted Generosity in Action to help them fulfill their "Giving-Back" pledge.

"Giving Back" to the people and regions in which we work is a core philosophy of Bushtracks. "Giving Back" means that our local staff support the community in which we work, that our staff overseas support the communities in the regions in which we travel and that we encourage our travelers to support the people that they visit.
